comment Shrink database is not shrinking as much as expected on a 1.5 TB database.
My initial feelings on Hyperbac & virtual restore are pretty good - It provides massive space saving and performance about 30-50% slower which is good enough for most dev senarios. Our large batch jobs failed to complete though - so we are still investigating.

I'm going to look at the SQL Virtual Restore feature from Hyperbac stuff from Red Gate.
