SAP Database Size


I know this question has been asked before, but I still cannot find a solution. We've used SAP B1 for 10 months only and our db size is over 6.2GB! I've read SAP's documentation and I tried shrinking the database, but nothing happens. Here's what I do step by step:

in SQL 2005 Management Studio, I right click on the database, select "Tasks-Shrink Files" (or Shrink Database.. I've tried both). Then I choose either file type as "data" or "log files", leave "RElease Unused Space" and click OK. After few seconds the dialog box disappears and nothing changes.. Same size. I've also tried changing the shrink action to "Reorganize pages before releasing unused space", but the smallest amount I can shrink it to is the current size.

So at this point I need some advice as to what to do. SAP is getting slower and slower each day. Thank you for your help
