This article will guide you on how #MSSQL Database Autogrowth Configuration works. Therefore do not rely on the default #SQL Server Data and Log file Autogrowth value and must always set it to more realistic values depending upon the usage of the database.
To see data file growth in SQL #Server:
1. Connect to a SQL instance and right-click on a database for which we want to get details of Auto Growth and Shrink Events.
2. It opens the disk usage report of the specified #database.
3. In this #disk usage report, we get the details of the data file and log file space usage.
To Change default database location via SQL Server Management Studio:
i. Right Click on Server and Select "Properties".
ii. In the "Server Properties" dialog box, navigate to "Database Settings" tab and data/log files location under "Database default locations" group.
iii. Click on "OK" to apply changes.
