Upgrading expired version of SQL 2008 R2 CTP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I installed the trial version of SQL 2008 R2 CTP and it has since expired. I have since got a Bizspark licence so have the disk for SQL 2008 R2, but you can't upgrade from the CTP edition. Is there a way I can install the new version and not lose the data in my expired DB. 

    Can I copy the Data files and associate them with a new install if I remove the expired copy?
