Search appears to be broken, but I'm looking for an article that clearly and concisely explains why you should not shrink data files. I know Paul Randal has a blog, but I am looking for one for this site, that can reference his, but is written in a cleaner, and shorter style.

Hi Steve,

I wouldn't mind having a go at this one, if nobody else has volunteered.

Feel free. Looking for a nice short concise reference to give people, and use as a link in one of my talks Wink
