hi , it is very urgent ...........
THERE IS NOT ENOUGH SPACE ON THE DISK
Your comment in the title conflicts with what you are saying. If you are out of disk space, then you would have to free some disk space in order for the server to operate normally. Shrink transaction logs and databases where you can. You might have to perform a backup first, which will be difficult if the disk is already full.
Bottom line is that you will have to clean up the drives to free up more space.
thanks for reply . i shrinked t -logs files and data files .
another one c: drive show 0 bytes free space .
Don't you have any monitoring methods to go through available disk space and database growth, this is nothing but panic out of blue.
The error message is quite clear that the server is unable to cope up the load or volume, so you have to make it clear to continue further. If the database files are located on C: drive and if you have enough free space on another drive then detach and attach the database.
And to add to Satya...if only your operating system is on the c: drive, then you really have a BIG problem. Try and clean up the c: drive through Windows system tools, but it sounds like someone really need to look at space issues on that box rather soon.
hi, 1 .data files and transaction logs files r in d drive.
2. if i opened the sql profiler it shows low disk space .....
Why you have opened Profiler?
Are you having any slow performance issues or any monitoring requirement.
Refer to the SQL Server error log to see what kind of errors & warnings are logged.
thanks for send reply........ok we r now clean up some unwanted files and c drive slowly shows the free space
thanks satya garu...........
That is the final workaround for you and I believe this is not a production server as your urgency doesn't sound like that.
In any case make sure to differentiate non-sql server files from the SQL Server drives as suggested by Martin above.
Separate names with a comma.
