Hello Experts,
i just received a low disk space warning on my exchange server 2003. I run regular backups. I used sequoia view to see where the space was going. I found a directory and file sucking alot of space. The file in question is called( sharepoint-confis-fdb---------------------log.LDF Is there anything that can be done so that they do not take up 20% of the HDD space?

Thanks

that's a SQL log file.

you can change the Recovery Model on that database...
one way to do this is to use SQL Server Management Studio.  changing the recovery model for a sharepoint sql database is no different than doing it for any other SQL database.

i'd recommend changing it to Simple.  especially if it's a config database.
just make sure you are doing daily backups of your sharepoint site.  i'd recommend doing backups using both stsadm and SQL backups.

here is an explanation of Recovery Models:

what version of SQL is your sharepoint site running on?
