I have a SBS server that has SharePoint running and since we're not using it, it's not backed up. The size of the databases is running out of control. Would it be an issue if I deleted those databases related to SharePoint since we don't use it anyway...I'm worried that this could cause any server issue considering that SBS comes with SharePoint already installed.

Thank you.

It was used by SharePoint since it was up and running. We moved to Office 365 so there is no need for a SharePoint on site. I just want to make sure that if I delete the SharePoint mdf and ldf files will not affect anything else, not being very familiar with SBS.

Thank you!

Conventional wisdom is to disable both Exchange and SharePoint services after such a migration.  Exchange, however is needed for SBS daily reports.  Don't suppose you have a backup of the system when the SharePoint data base was smaller?

Thinking about this, what I might do is to install a new SBS 2008 on a temp machine, then detach the semi-empty database, move it to the production server, d detach the big data base on the SBS 2008, and attach the small unused one.  If that is successful, you could archive the big one, just in case.
