MSSQL Log files taking up 28 GB
Posted on 2016-08-07
I was alerted by the users not receiving emails, and when I went into our Exchange server, I realized that C drive was critically full. I started to clean up, after running disk clean up, and doing routine things, I still did not have enough room.
I found out that MSSQL 10_50.SBMONITORING\MSSQL\Log folder was 28GB. I would like to reduce the size of this folder, but not sure if I can just go in and delete files. Some .mdmp files are over 5 years old.
We are using Windows Small BUsiness Server 2011 Standard, and besides Exchange Server 2010, there is a database program on this drive. The data is stored on another drive.
