if you have sql management studio you can do that


1 set your DB to SIMPLE RECOVERY (right-click on DB in SQLMS, go to properties, Options, Recovery Model -> Simple).

2 Then shrink the files - firstly your log file and then your data file. To do so, right-click on DB in SQLMS, Tasks, Shrink, Files. Set FileType to log and and choose "Reorganise pages..." and set as low as you can go. Repeat but set FileType to Data.

3 Set your DB back to FULL RECOVERY if it was on there before you changed to SIMPLE RECOVERY above. If it was already set for SIMPLE RECOVERY then just leave as is.
