We've recently archived a massive database and we want to shrink it to recover disk space.

I know shrinking is not a good practice but as archiving is done I want to shrink it.

I am planning to run DBCC SHRINKDATABASE I’ve already implemented this on CTC a while back without any issues.

But if Shrink activity is stopped before it completes what is the impact on the database?

Thansk in advance

The answer is in here:

DBCC SHRINKDATABASE operations can be stopped at any point in the process, and any completed work is retained.
