The SBSMONITORING Database Files on my server are huge. The mdf file is one gigabyte and the ldf file is over two gigabytes. Yes, the service is running, and yes, it is set to automatic. My C:Drive is just about maxed out. I know - I need to move the database off of the C Partition. But the problem remains - Why is the file so huge, and what can I do about it?

I believe that the problem may have been caused by my antivirus program. I noticed that the background scanner was not set to exclude these files, and I think they may be corrupt. Is there any possible way to just flush these files and start fresh without reinstalling?
