We have some questions about Data Space Available in SQL Server Database

Condition our Db:
O/S   = NT
Datasize in SQL = 2000 MB
Data space available = 0.00 MB
Log Size = 1000 MB
log space Available = 0.00 MB

the above info that there is no more space available , but we could entry our transaction (record) into DB.

1. How could it be happenned ?
2. Is there any solution ? , cause we are worry it's gone be a "time bomb" for DB space.

Thank you .

1). Click on the name, bring up the "Edit Database" window and
select Recaclulate...

2). In the same window, but on the "Options" panel, there is a tick box that is marked "Truncate Log On Checkpoint", this should be set to keep the log pretty empty

I have exactly the same situation, the proposed solution dosn't help. To date the only way to 'solve' it was renaming database, creating a new one and transferring data to it.

You can also try doing 'checkdb' on your database, could be, that  space for tables is incorrectly allocated.

The other suggestions are what I'd try first as well, but a tip that might come in handy is that if you run DBCC checktable(syslogs) it will also update the 'reported' available space in your database.
