I have a SQL Server 2005 on Windows Server 2003 all the latest service packs

I am managing my database file growth like a good little DBA and making sure there is plenty of free space in them. Every two weeks I check the db and tran log files and expand manually as needed. I am puzzled because I noticed that one db file is autogrowing even though there is plenty of free space. I am also monitoring the growth of the data and it grows at about 1GB per week and the file has 18GB free space. I also found out that autogrowth occurs every Sunday night 100MB at a time (which is how its set) to about 1.5GB.

Why would my db file be autogrowing when I am checking the file free space

Current file Specs
Mdf file: Space used 429.57GB, Space Reserved 448.52
LDF File: Space used 281.51MB, Space Reserved 64651.49MB

Your help is appreciated

Do you have an index maintenance routine running on Sundays?

Do you have a very large batch job that runs on Sundays that might possibly create and drop tables?

SORT_IN_TEMPDB you might not have set it so sorting will happen in same DB which might have increased the space growth
