#### corrupt log file?

can someone please help with this?  i have a store whose log file (.ldf file)
which has grown out of control.  the database size is 1.2gb and the log file
is 560mb.  i am trying to switch to a new pc but this seems to be causing
issues and i can not create the database on the new machine from the backup
as recommended.  does anyone have an idea of how to fix this log growth
problem?

Thanks,

Jim

Jim,

The log growth problem is most probably coz of the "Recovery Model", please
right click on the DB then Properties|Options then change the recovery model
from "Full" to "Simple"

The next step is to shrink the log file, right click on the DB then
Tasks|Shrink|Files and shrink the log file to the minimum

you should do it in SQL Server Management Studio (Express) if u have SQL
Server 2005, or Enterprise Manager for SQL Server 2000.

Would u plz tell me what version of RMS/SQL u r running?

yes this is doable in sql server 2000 too, but since u have the free =
MSDE version, u should use the following statements from SO =

a.. USE master
ALTER DATABASE dbname SET RECOVERY SIMPLE

a.. then execute the following to know the name of the DB log to be =
able to shrink it: -
use dbname=20
go
sp_helpfile

a.. then shrink the log file as follows: -
DBCC SHRINKFILE(YourLogFileName, 2)

Ahmed, thanks for your help.  this worked on my test machine but something
really odd is preventing it from working on my store computer.  when i
checked the sp_helpfile to find the log file name it does not match to what
is in the SQL folder with the database.  Inside the sql file folder it shows
the log as being gfanc03 but the query returned a log name of gfanc02.  i
tried to shrink gfanc02 and it says that it can't find the file.  i then
tried what shows in the sql file folder (gfanc03) and it says that it can not
find the file again.  this system did apparently crash last year and they
hired someone to repair it.  i'm think the repair was not done properly and
this is part of the problem.  can you think of any other way to possibly fix
this?

thanks again for all the help!

Jim

i don't know any other way, plz double check what u r doing, i believe u
should use the name returned from sp_helpfile regardless to physical file
now, i suggest that u use the SQL server newgroup to get better support in
this matter

For example, you might be sending the final document to a service bureau to be printed on a high-resolution printer. When you use this feature, you can save the file in a special format that contains raw printer data specific to the selected printer. When you s...
