Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition has been designed with older Microsoft operating systems in mind. Offering bespoke data management options as well as the ability to enhance levels of performance, this bundle can be downloaded in the event that the original SQL copy was lost or otherwise corrupted. This is the official software package offered by Microsoft.
Main Functions and Uses
Originally published in 2005, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition provides the user with all of the most important tools to better manage his or her system. As the name may already suggest, this bundle can be used with older versions of Microsoft such as Microsoft XP and Microsoft 2000. Some core processes include advanced data protection, the better management of online applications and superior data storage solutions. This software can come in quite handy if a system seems to be running poorly.
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition is 53.5 megabytes in total size, so most systems will not experience adverse performance issues. Possessing the Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 is the minimum requirement in order for this package to be downloaded. It is also recommended that at least 525 megabytes of additional hard drive space are available. An installation wizard will guide the user through the download process.
