To delete data or log files from a database

    In Object Explorer, connect to an instance of the SQL Server Database Engine and then expand that instance.

    Expand Databases, right-click the database from which to delete the file, and then click Properties.

    Select the Files page.

    In the Database files grid, select the file to delete and then click Remove.

    Click OK.
