Sharepoint Services v3 Config Database log file grown to 8GB!!! yet database is 9mb - Why???

Last Modified: 2010-07-26

We have SPS v3 running well with various sites created (approx 6) today our server ran out of space on C:. I am researching how to relocate the default SQLEXPRESS database directorys onto a larger disk, but whilst looking around the server I found that the Sharepoint_Config LOG file was the main culprit as it was 6.6GB in size!!

Question is: Has anyone else noticed large log files in SPS v3, how can I delete it (if possible) and why might it be growing so much?
