SBS2008 Sharepoint Config Log no disk space

We have recently taken over a client with almost no space left on the c: drive (11GB) where the system is, and almost no space on the d: drive (21GB) where the company data and sharepoint database is held.

i need to free up some space and the sharepoint config logs are 23GB which would be nice to have, to buy me some time.

i've the researched the routine - and it's pretty straight forward - BUT i dont have enough space to store the backups on any available Disks

Can i just run the DBCC SHRINKFILE (N'Sharepoint_Config_log'50)  command ?

i know it's a bit risky, but im running out of space and time

nothing is wrong with command it will shrink SQL logs.. but i would prefer before executing this command you should take backups.

as  you  mention there is no space available then just connect external drive.. or USB drive and then go for the above command.

There is no harm to shrink share point database log files to make free space. Before doing these take the database and log file backup on external drive.

To shrink log refer below link :
