Hi,
to clear it out:
     dump transaction DBName with no_log

to dump to a device:
     dump transaction DBName to DumpDevice

For more info do a search on "Dump Statement" in books online.

Hope this helps.

DUMP TRANSACTION DBTest to DISK = 'C:\TRANS.DMP'
e.g.

Or to a device you create.
It's all eplained in the DUMP-Help page in Transact SQL-Help
