adf alf files

I have ACT 2009 and I was wondering if there is a way to move my adf and alf files from the current location.  I was able to move the pad file but not these.

Stop the SQL server ...
But if you do that, the PAD files will be useless as they point to the specific location

Re: adf alf files

Can I stop the sql, move the adf files and turn the sql back on so I can use the pad files? Iam trying to move files into a folder that will be encrypted.
Thanks.

I was able to move the current database folder.  Thanks.

Next question:  I have another database alf/adf file in the old location and it wont allow me to open, or delete it.  Why?  It also says its in use.

Most likely you have another ADF files with the same name already attached or you haven't detached one from SQL
