I'm changing the recovery model of ReportServer database from FULL to SIMPLE.

Is there any reason why i would not want to do this? Besides the obvious answer of losing point-in-time recovery? (i am not doing transaction log backups on this database anyways.)


If you're not using transaction log backups, then you don't need FULL recovery mode. It's that simple.

  • you don't only need it, you actually should not use FULL mode if you are not backing your logs. Otherwise the .ldf file will eventually fill your hdd
