i want to expand the size of a database device, however, it doesn't work and i discovered that the max. size available is negative.  Do you know why?

Before that, an error has occurred. the message is :
Can't allocate space for object "Syslog" in database "Netstat" because the "logsegment" segment is full.

first of all dump your transaction log and run
DBCC checktable syslogs command.

Was the DUMP transaction  executed succesefully ? Have you run dbcc checktable syslogs ? if yes right-click on datavase in Sql Enterprise manager 'Server manager' window and choose edit -what does it show for log? Click on 'Truncate' and 'Recalculate'.

Instead of expanding the DB device , Add one more DB device your DB.

Double click your DB, click expand , In Data & log Device select <New> and add these devices to your DB.
