    thanks Marcin,

    you are right. it is 'auto grow'.

    i am planning to set 10% of size.

    if i apply shrink database today , everytime i have to apply the same ?.

    is there any other option also?.

    everyone is having such a large log size (30 gb) compare to databse size (50 gb)?.

    regards

    raj

      Hi Raj,

      My database size is about 30GB (3 years of usage) and log file is about 12GB.

      My database settings (recomendent by SAP and Early watch) are:

      I shrinked database to minimum size and set following settings:

      Database (mdf and ndf):

      - growth activated: checked

      - growth not restricted: checked

      - next step possible: checked

      - next step size: 60MB

      tempdb and log file:

      - growth activated: checked

      - growth not restricted: checked

      - next step possible: checked

      - next step size: 10%

      Regards,

      Marcin Gajewski

    Hi Raj,

    First, check in Enterprise Manager properties of the database. Maybe Your database have 'auto grow' enabled.

    That may explain size of database.

    You may shrink database too. Empty space allocated in *.mdf, *.ndf, *.ldf files will be truncated.

    Regards,
