I have a SQL Server 2008 R2 system that is running out of space on the drive. I have found a master.mdf file that is 92GB in size and I am assuming this is my issue. I am hoping for some guidance on how we can reduce the file size of this. I have located under the properties of this an option that is under automatic - Auto Shrink - is set to false. What impact will this have if I alter this to true and how often and at what times would this run?
Also would there be any other options / command that I can run to reduce the size of this file.
I have limited experience with SQL so would really appreciated the help and guidance in trying to resolve this one.
