Hello Team,
Currently my scheduled task(s) failing due to the "out of space" error on the log side.
Have modified the log file in management studio as well as using TSQL in below
and still gets reset back to 2GB max and restricted.  The available space on this drive letter is 100 GB.
What could be possibly going on to limit this way?
thx

alter database YourDB
modify file (name='YourDB_log', size=100MB, filegrowth=10%, maxsize=unlimited)

Can you post here the result of the following command?
sp_helpdb 'YourDBNameHere'

Interesting results.
the db help result returns (green highlight) 2 TB but the management studio displays 2 GB

I think they're actually the same value, 2TB: in SSMS, 2M MB = 2TB.

Btw, you want to use a fixed log growth, not a percent, and make sure your disk subsystem can handle that amount in a reasonable time.  1GB could take a while to pre-format depending on your specific disk.

ALTER DATABASE db_name
    MODIFY FILE ( NAME ='YourDB_log', FILEGROWTH = 400MB, MAXSIZE = UNLIMITED)

You are right and I feel so stupid.
All I paid mostly attention to was the "restricted" and not the value.

and I did that percent deal for ease of the question, so there won't be a confusion between the point that I was going to make and others.
Okay, I let this run and see what happens.
thank you again .
