Thank you all!! I appreciate the replies. I most likely will do the 2008 Express upgrade at this point.

Thanks,
mwk


This is a quick fix, however if 2008 Express could eventual reach its limit on size. If you believe that could be the case, it at the very least, gives you time to refractor your database so as it make it easier to "control" its size.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Agreed here. There's no way out of this. You either pay for a license or pay for time.

The only question here is how much is the license compared to man hours.



That's when you realize how cheap a license is Hehe.

This morphing into a completely different subject, but for what it is worth let me also point out:

1. Paying for time - lets change that slightly to paying for your training in SQL.
2. Subtract from the time cost by the intangible. That is what you learn will (could) make you an more productive employee, whose new knowledge will allow for the development of new databases in a shorter time period, and that are more effective in answering your companies needs.

Thus offsetting what is considered a cost to an investment and estimating the ROI (Return On Investment). Which might even become a positive value.

So like most things in SQL the phrase "It depends" applies to your situation.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Maybe I missed something in the previous replies, but the real question might be "Why has my DB grown so large?" It would be good to know how it's designed, how much data is going into the big transactional tables and so on. Without casting aspertions on this DB, experience shows that there are an awful lot of databases out there using up way more space than they should, due to poor design and management.
