I have a Windows Small Business Server 2008 that has a 50GB log file (LDF) for a WSS 3.0 "config" database. It's strange because WSS isn't used that much by the users and none of the old MDF and LDF files for WSS are any larger than 70MB.

Pretending I know very littel about WSS and SQL maintenance... how do I compact this log file? Since I can't access the WSS database in SQL Server Management Studio Express?
