I ran the Optimization portion of my DB Maintenance Plan this morning and
my .MDF and .LDF files are still large. How do I reduce these in size?
Database Size: 4,934 MB
Available Space: 3,965 MB
If it matters, here are the settings for the optimization of this database:
Reorganize data & index pages
Change free space per page to 10%
Remove unused space from db files
Shrink db when it grows beyond 50 MB
Amount of free space to remain after shrink - 10% of the data space
Also, in general: Is it better to check the "Reorganize pages with the original
amount of free space" instead of "Change free space per page to 10%"?
