I need to shrink a popular CRM database with SSMS to move it onto a new server. I am going from SQL Server 2008 Standard to SQL Server 2014 Express. Database is in Simple Recovery Model. It needs to be under the 10 gig limit.
There's 39% space to erase but shrink does not work. I've done this many times including this database after removing 100000's of rows in different tables but it does not want to shrink this time.
No errors just runs and does nothing.
