Can a Very Large EQCAS Database Log File Be Reduced in Size?

Article # 3016295 - Page views: 334

With Equitrac Professional 5, the EQCAS database log file has grown exceedingly large (for example, over 85 GB in size). Is it possible to reduce the size of the file?


The log file contains information regarding the transaction history that has taken place since the database was last backed up. Any free space in the database can be cleared to reduce the size of the database. Use Microsoft SQL Management Studio to accomplish this task.


 Equitrac strongly recommends backing up your database before you begin to make any of the suggested changes to your database. The work should only be performed by those who are familiar with database manipulation.
