Hi all, Been finding information on this web site for a while now, but finally had to make a post Of course I am running out of space on my SQL 2005 server and trying to narrow down the problem to make the proper backup and move on. The issue is that I have multiple log.LDF files for one database and one of them is 25GB! Creating a backup of the database and transaction log does not seem to be shrinking this log file. I do keep the backups on another disk. So my question is why is the backup not shrinking this log file as it should? I did try to Shrink the file in the Object Explorer by right clicking on the database SharePoint_Config -> Tasks -> Shrink -> Files. It says that there is currently 2.50MB of space allocated to the Log file of SharePoint_Config_log.LDF. But as you will see below, this file does not have the same sequence of numbers and letters after the file name. Shrinking the file using any of the available Shrink options is not working. Its still at 25GB. Here are the names of the multiple log.LDF files, files sizes of log and corresponding .mdf, and last modified from explorer. In the Object Explorer within SQL Server Management Studio, the name of this database is SharePoint_Config. Under the properties of the database the File Name is just SharePoint_Config.mdf and SharePoint_Config_log.LDF so I am not sure where all the extra numbers and letters are coming from? There is only 1 file Group. SharePoint_Config_60b51b5e-69f3-4c04-a11d-ee11b4205cfe_log.LDF Log file is 25GB and was last modified today Correspondng mdf is only 8MB and was modified about a month ago SharPoint_Config_9d4f17ce-2105-46c0-8ace-52f62616dcba_log.LDF Log file is 34.8MB and last modified in 2007 Correspondng mdf is only 5MB and was modified in 2007 SharePoint_Config_cc0076f-c48f-47a8-8ad7-c0cf2c62ae41_log.LDF Log file is 3MB and was last modified in 2007 Correspondng mdf is only 5MB and was modified in 2007 I am really stumped, any help is greatly appreciated, and I am standing by to try all suggestions. Thanks!
