The company I work for is currently using SQL server 2008 R2 SP2 Express Edition. Express Edition doesn't have the option to run maintenance plans. The reason why we use Express Edition is because the customer we have are not willing to pay for the standard version so to save cost we supply this version.

Now the issue we have at present is there isn't any database maintenance run at all, due to this I've noticed a massive performance issue on the servers. When taking a closer look I found that the Transaction Logs have been increasing in size, sometimes 10 times the size of the database its self.

What I need to know is there any queries that I can setup as scheduled tasks to try and perform maintenance on a database using Express?

Check out this site for a set of excellent procedures:

You can use the Windows Task Scheduler to run these using SQLCMD.
