Hi

First you should change your recovery Model database to Simple mode.

Second you should shrink your database.

How to shrink database:

For safe keeping, you should trunk your database before reduce/shrink the vCenter DB.

You can also purge the old data from your vCenter DB

Note: Always backup your vCenter DB before any changes.

Hope this can help
