Hello, recently my sharepoint server ran out of disk space. The SQL database is stored locally on it. I drilled down and found out that the Content LDF was consuming all of the hard drive space. I searched around the web and several sites recommended changing the recovery mode to Simple. I did make that change and I was able to shrink the log file database. That freed up about 17 gigs on the server. Further reading stated that this was not a good practice and that log files should be "dumped". I checked my 2005 SQL server manager and it doesn't appear that I have the capability to backup the log file anymore. I can still shrink it though. I'm not very familiar with Sharepoint. It's basically being used now as a knowledge base. I'm wondering if what I've done to the database will prevent it from expanding again, resulting in the same issue? Also, do I need to be backing up the log file? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
