Re: why are logs not truncated

Post by Regnor » Nov 01, 2018 6:01 pm

The log file won't shrink after a backup is made and the logs were truncated; the space inside the log file will just be reused.
You can check how much free space is available in your log with the management studio in the properties of your database.

Correct, logs truncation doesn’t reduce the log size. Please see above for the hints.
