Hi Experts

The way our SQL Server database configuration is weird, anyway, the mdf, ndf, and ldf are located at D:\DATA\

Now the log file has grown up to over 100GB, and I tried to shrink it with command:

DBCC shrinkfile (N'D:\DATA\xxx_log.ldf', 18056)

 Then received an error message "Could not locate file 'D:\DATA\xxx_log.ldf' for database 'xxx' in sys.database_files. The file either does not exist, or was dropped. "

What should I do ? Urgent please
