I installed EV 8.0 sp1 last week. This is a production installation after completing a PoC, which was originally 7.something, and then I upgraded it to 8.0 (not with sp1).
I have noticed that the new installation has created a lot of .ndf files on the SQL server, but this was not the case with the PoC installation. There are 31 of them, all 1MB in size.
Why have these files been created? Is this a new thing in SP1, or have I just configured something differently? Are there going to be thousands more once I start putting data into the system? What impact do they have on sql backups?
