FILESTREAM

The new FILESTREAM funcationality  in the SQL Server 2008 allows you to configure a VARBINARY(max) column, so that the actual data in stored in the file system/storage area rather than within the database.

To enable FILESTREAM feature you must configure SQL Server Service for that instance.

sp_configure 'filestream_access_level' , 2


go
Reconfigure

Note : Database Mirroring is not compatiable with FILESTREAM data
