There is one log on DB server  which is too large, about 80G.   DB is only 20G

Hi Robin,


Yes, ServiceDesk Plus database transaction log can be shrunk or deleted. However, we strongly recommend you to take ServiceDesk Plus application backup and SQL full backup before proceeding with it. Refer to the below link for the instructions to take an application backup,

You can find the steps from the below link to shrink or delete the MSSQL transaction log. Please get this done by our Database Administrator,

Hope this helps!
