I must be doing something stupid. My transaction log task in my Maintenance Plan Task Step called Transaction Log Backup will not hold the settings for selected databases to be backed up. So, my transaction log files never get truncated and I run out of disk space. We installed a new application 2 weeks ago and now the .ldf file grows to about 50 gig and chews up the disk space. Of course I now how to backup the log manually, but I was wondering if there was a fix for this. I recently installed the critical patch for SQL Server 2005 SP2. This did not correct it. I think it is more of an issue with the properties of the step within my SSIS package that does the database maintenance. See attached screen shot.
