sp_create_removable [ @dbname = ] 'dbname'
    ,
[ @syslogical = ] 'syslogical'
    ,
[ @sysphysical = ] 'sysphysical'
    ,
[ @syssize = ] syssize
    
, [ @loglogical = ] 'loglogical'
    ,
[ @logphysical = ] 'logphysical'
    ,
[ @logsize = ] logsize
    
, [ @datalogical1 = ] 'datalogical1'
    ,
[ @dataphysical1 = ] 'dataphysical1'
    ,
[ @datasize1 = ] datasize1
    , [ @datalogical16 = ] 'datalogical16'
    ,
[ @dataphysical16 = ] 'dataphysical16'
    ,
[ @datasize16 = ] datasize16 ]

Arguments

[@dbname =] 'dbname'

Is the name of the database to create for use on removable media. dbname is sysname.

[@sysphysical =] 'sysphysical'

Is the physical name, including a fully qualified path, of the file that holds the system catalog tables. sysphysical is nvarchar(260).

[@syssize =] syssize

Is the size, in megabytes, of the file that holds the system catalog tables. syssize is int. The minimum syssize is 1.

[@loglogical =] 'loglogical'

Is the logical name of the file that contains the transaction log. loglogical is sysname.

[@logphysical =] 'logphysical'

Is the physical name, including a fully qualified path, of the file that contains the transaction log. logphysical is nvarchar(260).
