Now varchar(max) can be used for storing large strings of ASCII text
and nvarchar(max) for strings in unicode. text is depricated and may
be removed in future versions. I don't remember exactly in which
version of sql server varchar(max) was introduced, may be in 2005, but
as you said you're using 2008 express, you can use it.

Well, if you are having an error free backup copy of the db, you can
easily restore it. However, this cannot be done by just copying and
pasting the mdf/ndf files, you've to follow the restore procedure
(which is, in my opinion, not at all dificult to perform once you've
learnt it.)
