My SQL 2005 transaction logs are not shrinking with the maintenance plans I currently have in place. I run a FULL DB backup Tues-Sat at 1 am. TL's are backed up every 2 hours between 5:00 am and 6:00 pm Mon-Friday. I run DB optimization every Saturday at 11:00 pm. Can someone tell me what I'm missing? When I run a full DB backup shouldn't the TL's shrink? Recovery model is set to FULL. Its my undestanding that I could change this to Simple Mode and avoid the issue, but I'd like to keep them in FULL recovery mode...at least for now. I'm attaching a snapshot of my maintenance plans. Any thoughts?
