Database Properties (Filegroups Page)

 

Use this page to view the filegroups or add a new filegroup to the selected database. Filegroup types are separated into row filegroups, FILESTREAM data, and memory-optimized filegroups.

Row filegroups contain regular data and log files. FILESTREAM data filegroups contain FILESTREAM data files. These data files store information about how binary large object (BLOB) data is stored on the file system when you are using FILESTREAM storage. The options are the same for both types of filegroups.

If FILESTREAM is not enabled, the Filestream section will not be available. You can enable FILESTREAM storage by using Server Properties (Advanced Page).

For information about how SQL Server uses row filegroups, see Database Files and Filegroups. For more information about FILESTREAM data and filegroups, see FILESTREAM (SQL Server).

Memory-optimized file groups are required for a database to contain one or more memory-optimized tables.
