    Hi,

    My SharePoint Server 2007 is running out of space on the c: drive

    After some digging around I found 2 files: sharepoint_config_b4..._log.LDF &

    wss_content_log.LDF taking up 60Gb in size

    On my SharePoint 2007 Server I have noticed that no version of SQL Server or Enterprise Manager is installed

    How can I connect to these DB's

    Install SSMS from the SQL Server Express link:

    Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 Express - Click "Download" and select the MgmtStudio 32/64BIT\SQLManagementStudio_x86/64_ENU.exe file depending on your system architecture.

    Hi

    If I download and install this on my SharePoint 2007 Server, will it overwrite anything i.e .Net files or current databases, or instances

    Just don't want to mess up anything on my current sharepoint server

    thanks in advance

    No. If you just install Management Studio nothing will get overwritten.

    Alternatively if you do not want to interefere with your SharePoint machine install Management Studio on a workstation you can remotely manage SQL/SharePoint with. Management Studio does not have to be installed on the same machine as SQL.
