Last week I was migrating to my new work laptop - HP 2740p tablet which has a very powerful CPU, but feels like the chassis only ran through the first half of the design process.
During this move I used Windows Easy Transfer to copy files back and forth (and for backup). When I started to work on my machine the disk appeared full despite when using properties of the drive I found 60Gb free and no irregularities using Disk Management. So to help me with this I run the error checking tool (from the Tools tab in properties).
Best of all you can use LinqPad with Windows Azure. A side note: Open SQLExpress locally to see how your development store is constructed.
