Hello friends,

I have a question that I have a database "Deparment" in my SQL Server 2008r2 environment It has Data files of 5GB and Logfile is 13GB.

My question is Is that possible we can Move this 13GB log file to another location and create a new log file so that the further transaction can store in new log file which saves my space means my database size will 5 Gb in this scenerio.

Wating for yours suggession?

Thanks
Jitendra

Let me guess... Full recovery model and no log backups. When maintained properly, the space in the log file is reusable. See the recommended article
