I have deleted ~2 million rows in the table sysmail_mailitems in the msdb database. The table was about 35gb, but now after the delete it's still 35gb. I have tried to shink booth database and files. When I run: EXEC sp_spaceused 'sysmail_mailitems' I get this: name, rows, reserved, data, index_size, unused sysmail_mailitems 49878 35641360 KB 35503096 KB 9200 KB 129064 KB If I understand that right it says that I have 35gb of data, but I cannot find it. I have tried to run the SP with @updateusage parameter set to true, like this: EXEC sp_spaceused 'sysmail_mailitems', @updateusage='true' But that doesn't help either. I have also run a backup on the database, but it still wont shrink.
