Hello Masters,

My log files are growing too much... I am taking regular backup but I am recieving disk space critical limit messages every few days, some time I shrink the log file to produce some disk space. But I come to know that shrinking will increase the fragmentation and which may cause the performance issue. I am worried about that.

Is there any other way to fight with this log file growth issue ? Any advice and comments are welcome !

Thanks in advance,

Take more frequent log backups or extend the disk.
