My log file was 2x the size of my actual Database which is obviously too large on a DEV box. I know that my data can be easily recovered so I actually do not even want/need a log file.
After doing some investigation I found that I should turn my database into "Simple Recovery Mode" and after this I used a few scripts to truncate my log file. Things at this point looked great!
Unfortunately my log File is still growing even with this 'simple recovery mode'. So how do I stop this craziness from occurring?
I even unchecked the box 'allow autogrowth' on the database! However, I eventually get errors when creating records in the system because it complains about running out of room in the log file.
The transaction log for database 'ReportingDB' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases
Please help me stop this madness
