Set the recovery model of tempdb to SIMPLE. This model automatically reclaims log space to keep space requirements small.

to switch recovery model

Use ALTER DATABASE, as follows:

USE master;

ALTER DATABASE database_name SET RECOVERY SIMPLE;

Open in new window



thing to consider before changing to simple recovery
