Sharepoint LDF files take up all my SBS2008 Server drive space.

Hi all,

I manage a 2008 SBS server for a client. It recently started sending errors that there are less than 4 GB of free space on the C: drive. I dug around and found two files:

Sharepoint_Config_xxxx_log.LDF - 25 GB
ShareWebDB_log.LDF - 9 GB

What can I do to reduce the size or move these files to a bigger drive? At this rate I'm going to have to figure out how to repartition a live server to get more disk space.

These SQL server logs.  SQL server flushes logs only after a full backup.  As I can see SharePoint is running on the server, when was the last time SQL server backed up.  What I recommend you do is if you have another drive (i.e. D: or E:) with sufficient space (sum of all LDF and MDF file sizes) then perform SQL server full backup and then truncate log files.  

Refer to the following link:

Thanks for the help. I got the server to cooperate just fine after drilling down through that link and looking at the suggestions.
