I’ve created a database using Ms. SQL Server Express 2014 (its name is “b”), When I try to attach it in ArcMap environment, I get an error (in the screenshot below). However, when I create it directly (by right clicking the Geodatabase Server, and selecting new Geodatabase) everything goes well, and it is created properly.
What might be the issue here; Why I get this error when attaching the database from ArcMap?
Any help is appreciated,
1- Creation of the Database in SQL Server
2- Attaching The database in ArcMap
3- The error Appears! It say that it has accessibility problems
4- There is no restrictions on access to the "D" drive
Does the SQL Server Express service account have access to that folder?
I would recommend placing the MDF/Log file in the database location that is specified in the SQL instance.

Let us know if that works....
Many thanks George for the suggestion, I tried it, but it did not work. Shown below!
