Hi,

I have analised the space of my datafile and i have a dought...
I have used the reports of SQL Server 2005 to see the space used by my database.


the report stats that my datafile as 51 % of the space used by indexs and 38 % used by data.

Is this normal ? (the space used by the indexs is bigger that the space used by the data)

Why this is appening?

Thank you.

It is quite possible that the index space is including your clustered indexes.

Try running the scripts shown in this article:
