Hi, Recently I found an article that showed a simple way of getting rid of the transaction log without much stuffing around. It involved deleting the log file and re-attaching the mdf but I can't seam to find it.

I have used the the suggested way and worked very well, but I simply lost the article.
Does anyone know how to do it simly? I found some articles but they do a lot of stuffing around
