Is the SQL server client tools installed? if so, please try opening a connection with Query analyzer.
I mean, App_Data access could be code error but the connection to SQL is what not troubling to get access.
Let us know about your try.

please provide me a step,
Click on Start Menu->Navigate to MS SQL Server on the Srat menu->Locate Query analyser->A dialog box of query analyzer opens with Sql server instance name By clicking this dialog box if you get connected to query analyser it will show the list of databases
on top in a dropdown list.
alternatively, following the steps do not get opend query analyzer then, probably the installation of SQL server client tools is not done. Sorry for that. hence first need to have a sql server (any version) installed. But installation of any component need
to have a consent with Administrator.
please ask your administrator for troubleshooting to make your SQL server installation available to work with.

An attempt to attach an auto-named database for file C:\Users\user\Documents\YEAR 3\DOUBLE MODULE\FinalProject\App_Data\Database1.mdf failed. A database with the same name exists, or specified file cannot be opened, or it is located on UNC share.
It's clear that I suspect whether you have the same db hung up in your Server——So plz remove that and then restart your app after building it and have a try with that。
