I need some suggestions, we are running out of disk space on our server.
We are not getting anymore space.
Is there any way to bring back space until we get our new servers.

They are not coming for a month.
Does anyone have any suggestions on this.

    You can delete the older log files which take up a lot of space.  The location is dependant upon where you selected during the installation, but it shouldn't be difficult for you to find.

    Sounds like you might need to do a defrag of the database(s) to recover space.

    Very similar to Dustin's suggestion you could also enable Circular logging (even just for the month until you get your new kit)

    "Although you can delete the log files after all databases in a storage group have been shut down, doing so will affect your ability to restore older backups and roll forward. The current database no longer needs the existing log files, but they may be necessary if you must restore an older database."
