Ml350G6 32GB RAM  running SBS 2011. Installation not maintained.....
 SBSMonitoring.mdf is at 10,383.3 MB
 SBSMonitoring_log.LDF  at 672.3MB

any suggesting on reducing or shrinking this seems way to large.

Hi Richard,

I recreated the SBS Monitoring database myself on Friday following the steps of the article provided.  

After unzipping the .ps1 file I did have to unblock the file as the article suggests.

The MoveDataPowershellHost.exe launches a command window, from within that window, execute the script.

You may well get a lot of alerts following the recreation of the database.  Don't forget to go into the Console and resupply the email addresses for the Summary / Detailed Network reports and your Notification Settings.

Does this script remove the old MDF & LDF before creating new or do we need to stop the services and delete the old SQL database
