SQL Server Express DB Shrink..
Posted on 2009-05-06
I installed a Moss2007 with SSE and now its 4GB limit is reached, I installed the Sql Server Managment Studio Express and have the option to shrink my content DB , can I do that while users are hitting the sharepoint site or do I need to wait for a quiet period and dump the lan cable out of it then run it.
I'm not sure but I thought it would put locks on it while it does it but I dont really know.
Main prob is because DB full , I am trying to delete a large 800MB file off sharepoint to free some space temporarily but it wont let me delete it, I assume because no DB space left ??
