    How can I safely remove unwanted data in the following internal tables in msdb? I've noticed these tables are too large and casuing disk space issues. I want to check how data is writing to these tables? I've checked online and nobody seems to know for sure how to remove data from the tables. (I've run the maintenenace plans but these have had no effect.):
    1) queue_messages
    2) sysxmitqueue

    What is the current size of MSDB database in this case?
    Why not move it to the drive where the space is not an issue?

    hi guys - i found the answer! database mail was not working so I cleared the database mail queue and purged all mails that hadn't been sent. this cleared the disk space. hope this helps. does this make sense to you?
