Yeah, they told me at PASS that every time you shrink a database a puppy gets killed.

I can't top that recently but I still have the piece of rebar that Rodney presented to me back in 2011.


--Jeff Moden
"RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for "Row-By-Agonizing-Row".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column."

You sure? I was told it would kill a project manager that thought they could design databases... been shrinkin' databases ever since.

Uhh, with this:
DBCC SHRINKFILE('WBT', 150000)

Blasphemy. Sheer Blasphemy.

Someone take away his golden SysAdmin key. Expel him from the ranks of the SQL Conspiracy forthwith! Revoke his TitD pass and remand him to the hippo's care!

Strange as it may seem in this day and age of cheap HD space, there are still places that refuse to provide enough space for their data forcing desperate people to use DBCC SHRINKFILE
