I've got a problem. I have a SharePoint_Config_log.LDF file that is over 6BG located on C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\MSSQL\Data. I've followed the suggestions in related posts about shrinking this. The problem is that the Sharepoint database has the following databases:

Databases
  System Databases
    master
    model
    tempdb
  STS_Config
  STS_server_1

When I right-click on the database, then: tasks > shrink > files, none of the listed files are in the above mentioned folder. Yet, this file is being modified all the time according to the timestamp. So, how do I figure out how to shrink, move, etc this file? This is VERY urgent because we are running out of space on C: which is causing lots of other things to break.

Thanks
