Hi!
My server (SQL 7) has a rather large hard drive so I never had any problems with space until today. For some reason my tempdb is all of a sudden 11GB. I don't know what the problem is but I really need to free up all that space. Shrink database didn't work and if i check the database in enterprize manager it's only 1.28 MB used (of 11,614.63MB)

I did a DBCC CHECKDB on tempdb and I got the following messages:

Server: Msg 8999, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
Database tempdb allocation errors prevent further CHECKDB processing.
Server: Msg 8906, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
Page (1:114) in database ID 2 is allocated in the SGAM (1:3) and PFS (1:1), but was not allocated in any IAM. PFS flags 'IAM_PG MIXED_EXT ALLOCATED   0_PCT_FULL'.
Server: Msg 8905, Level 16, State 1, Line 0
Extent (1:31992) in database ID 2 is marked allocated in the GAM, but no SGAM or IAM has allocated it.

I have no idea what to do with them!

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the quick responses!
I had to wait until most of the users were out then I restarted SQL . That restored my tempdb to a more reasonable 56MB (not 11GB) and it is not corrupted anymore.
