SQL Server Express 2005: Filter for C:\Program F...\MSSQL\DATA\** is reappended when Filter Discovery tool runs

Follow

When SQL Server Express 2005 is protected by Neverfail Heartbeat, the following file filter may be reappended by the Filter Discovery tool every time it executes:

C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT SQL SERVER\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\**

This occurs only when the following conditions are both met:

  1. A default instance of SQL Server 2005 Express is installed.
  2. This is the only filter protecting SQL Server data / transaction log files.  If SQL Server data / transaction log files are added in a new protected location, this does not occur once the new filters are discovered.

The issue is benign.  The persistent readdition of the filters does not trigger a File System Filter Change Check Task, so there is no additional file synchronization load incurred. Filter Discovery for all other file locations work correctly.
