When looking at our database it's 226 Gb, but the data is 167 Gb and the logfiles 59 Gb. Does this mean that I can reduce the size of the database by deleting the logfile?
No. Not unless you want to potentially destroy the entire database. The log is not an optional file. It's a critical and essential part of the database.
