Deleting LOG FILES automatically

  • Please suggest me a way where in the log files in SQL SERVER are deleted automaticallty at the end of the day at certain time.

  • Do you really want to delete them or just shrink them back to as close to original size as possible?

  • If all you want is to shrink them try:



    DBCC SHRINKFILE(dbname_Log, truncateonly)

  • Be sure to do a full backup after the truncate_only. I'm wondering, what exactly are the ramifications of truncate_only? Is it only clearing unneeded transactions?
