This question already has an answer here:
I have a datawarehouse with database log of 800 GB.now I want to shrink it or reduce the disk space occupied by Log.ldf file. I tried to shrink file in several ways - took full backup , performned transaction log back up, modified recovery mode from Full to Simple, executed dbcc command however none of them seems to help in reducing log size at disk.
I also detached database, deleted log file but due to memory-optimize file container I got error while I was trying to attach it again (I had read SQL server will automatically add a log file but seems it doesn't work when database has a memory_optimize file).
After all the above attempts database log file is still 800 GB and I am not really sure how to clean up space consumed by database log. Appreciate if I could get some expert opinion on this issue or guide me in case I am missing something.
