I got into a bit of complex project dynamics when I was handed over a SQL database which was having performance issues and huge database size.

Shrink / Reduce SQL Database Size and Reindex the databases

The mdf file was about 400Gb and ldf (Log file) was about 200GB. Now it was getting difficult to manage the backups, ability to quickly restore in case of need and all other associated problems. The business was keen to find a workable solution as soon as possible. And after a few attempts I was able to get the database size reduced to ~200GB.

Obviously there was no magic and I was able to free up a large ammount of data by deleting/archiving records from an Audit table which gets hit by record inserts for every user action in the application. But interstingly SQL does not free up the space automatically after you delete data/records from the database. There is an AutoShrink option available in SQL. (This option can be used from the Query editor or also using the SQL Server Management Sudio. )
