All versions of eWay-CRM




Solutions are described for these cases:

Option 1: Client Hosts eWay-CRM on His Server and Uses Paid SQL Server

The database has the maximum size of the data file. If you want to change its setting, you will need Microsoft SQL Management Studio. Follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the name of the database and select Properties.

  1. In the properties window, click Files and then the ... icon in the Autogrowth / Maxsize column in the row for the database file.

  1. In the new window, make sure to mark Enable Autogrowth, for example, on 10. Maximum File Size should be set to Unlimited. Now, your database will grow with your data, but you should first check that your server has the capacity for larger files.

Option 2: Client Hosts eWay-CRM on His Server and Uses SQL Server Express

SQL Server has a 10 GB limit for the database size. In this case, you can set that your documents and emails will be saved to the server file system - see Save Documents and Emails to Server Folder.

For more information about saving space in the database, please go to Insufficient Disk Space on Local Database.
