I recommend Backup and Restore because it also move your permissions, there is a known issue of orphaned permissions, meaning the permissions are created in the Master database but not in your database. The quick solution delete the restore and create a
new one. Please download and read the free backup and restore chapter from SQL Server 2005 a beginner’s guide.
If you use another method remember to check your permissions if they were not moved you need to follow the direction in the section dealing with moving your logins. Hope this helps.

Detach and attach will also work. Using T-SQL or Wizards.

If you want simply transfer just generate script and transfer through DTS.

There are many way to transfer running database.
1- Using backup restore.
2. Using Replication.
Detach and Attach is not the right way because there is chance of data loss.

Attaching/Deattaching works fine on first build at production or Q/A. But whenever I fix bug I create scripts to update the production database.

Why are you not using Import/Export if your system is connected in LAN, other wise you can use backup and restore option which take all your permisson, Identity, Defaultvalue as per your master database.

If u system is in local area connection(& in both the master & slave contain same formated server with same OS configuration) i think u can easily transfer the data(sometimes back i was at same confusion) the i take my senior help & u cannot even imagin
that i tranfer througn external hard drive(by copying from the source & moving to any other ).so [Yes] .And if u still facing prob. then u can go for some extra expertise.
Ok then [cool] ...Bye

You can copy .mdf & .ldf file. But for that, you have to first stop the sql server service. And this is one of the bad idea, because noone will give permission to stop service in a live server where a number of applications are running. So you may follow
one of the following solutions.
1) You may generate query which will contains structure of all tables & all stored procedures, functions etc. (Data will not be copied in this process)
2) Create back up & restore on your local machine where you want. (It'll copy strucure as well as data)
3) Export data from one system & import data on another system by using DTS export wizard.
export import database
create back up of database

You might want to look at the new deployment features in Visual Studio 2010 beta 1 that was just released. We've got some powerful tools to make it much easier to move a database with a Web application project for either hosted or self-hosted sites.

I'm a new user to this tools and am building a web project using visual web developer express 2008. I tried transfering all my project files to another computer but i can't get the database to connect. I've read that you have to attach detach, copy paste
etc lots of way to transfer the file. What i did before was just copy the project folder and transfer with usb but it kinda lost the database connection. How do i transfer the db as well? Hope you guys can help. I'm new so i don't get the term you guys using.
I found the attach method but i wanna know the other methods as well as a back up since the other computer is kinda far away and i wanna make sure i get it right this time. Please help. Thank you =)

Right click on your database. Go to Tasks->Backup. It'll show a location where to save. Take backup by clicking OK. Just go to that location & copy that file. Then go to second computer where you want to restore. Open SQL Server. Right click on "Databases".
Go to "Restore Database". Select "from device" option. Click on the right side button. Then click "Add". select that backup file & click OK. Then click "To database" dropdown list. You can see your database name. Select it & click OK.
Tell m if any problem.
