Hi,
you can use
DBCC SHRINKDATABASE ( database_name [ ,target_percent ])
or use other optiong such as truncation

Read here about it http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa258287%28SQL.80%29.aspx

also there's

DBCC SHRINKFILE ({fileid | 'filename'}, [compress_size [, {NOTRUNCATE | TRUNCATEONLY | EMPTYFILE}]])

which the specified shrinks data files, I use it when i've small size DB.

Hope that helps
