Do the following steps to reduce File size..

1. Open HP SIM -> Go to Task and logs
2. Choose View all scheduled tasks.
3. If not available, Create a Delete events task to Delete events older than 90 days.
4. Schedule it to run Daily or Weekly based upon your incoming load

After you run the task for the first time alone, just Shrink your Database size from SSMS to reduce file size from 34 GB to a lesser one.

http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2006/12/30/sql-server-shrinking-truncate-log-file-log-full/

Try Shrinking your Log file size to 1 GB
One suggestion...please take a Backup of your SQL DB before going to truncate or Shrink your DB..
