Is this a production database? If not, I would create a new one with the proper file size and then move the data there. Else, you have to shrink the database file before you can set the initial file size.

Thanks,

You have to use DBCC SHRINKFILE to reduce a file below its initial allocation.


USE <your_db_name>

-- get the file#s / names of all the db's files
EXEC sp_helpfile



Then choose the file# or filename you want to shrink. For example, to shrink the primary file to 2GB:


DBCC SHRINKFILE ( 1, 2000 )

Great, glad it helped!

Btw, use DBCC commands such as those above to do file shrinks and other such db maintenance tasks, not the SSMS gui, which can be flaky for such things.
