Database file cannot be created


Hi. We're trying to install SAP Solution Manager on an MS SQL Server under Win2008 R2.

But when trying to create the database files it gives me the following error: "The file C:\BACK\DB1DATA1\DB1DATA1.ndf already exists."

This cannot be true. The system is a fresh install, and there have been no prior installation attempts. Even changing the folder called "BACK" does not help, the message reflects the change.

Does anyone have an idea what could be the error here?
