I have big SQL Server database, with a lot of blob data in some tables.

For performance optimization, I want to move one table to separate hard drive.

I created new filegroup, and "row data" file.

But, I can't change any parameters in table properties: they are all disabled.

And I don't know a way to enable it.

Can anybody help me?
