When you have the recovey model's of your databases in Full you always have to make backups of your transaction logs in order to truncate them and release space inside the logs.
When you have a lot of databases with many transactions and a not so big volume for logs it's common to have a full drive. So you have to make that annoying log backup and shrink to release some space in the drive and have your databases back on track.
Since i have this problem in a regular basis, i decided to make a simple script to minimize this problem.
How to use:
- Create the folder defined on the script
- Set the limit of free space you want on the script in MB
- Just run or put the script on a job
To have a successfull backup of your ts log you first need a full backup of your database. The script doesnt make a full backup of the db, assuming that you have a job for that.
Use and abuse, report bugs, make some tweaks...Enjoy!
