There was an outage on a SQL server 2005 server which created many errors. This caused the errorlog to grow too much. We have cycled the log file (sp_cycle_errorlog), so we have a new file. The problem is that we want to recover the disk space used by the previous file (errorlog.1). Apart from just deleting the file, what is the best way to delete this file to avoid causing any problems? We have already inspected the contents of the file.
