I'm getting this error in the event log after trying to copy a database on my server. All I'm trying to do is create a copy for a test site on the same box. It has worked fine for another, smaller database.

Where would I find a more detailed error?

How are you copying the database? I normally take a backup of a database, then just do a restore (as a different name) from that backup.
