Shrinking Transaction Logs for SharePoint 3.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to shrink the logs and databases for my SharePoint server and the only database engine I am seeing in SQL Server Management Studio on the server is the SQLExpress.  This is not the engine for SharePoint, so I am not sure how to connect to that to be able to shrink the logs.  I am running on of space on my server.  I noticed that the large database files are in C:\Windows\SYSMSI\SSEE\MSSQL.2005\MSSQL\Data, does this mean I need to have 2005 Server Management Studio installed to connect to find the correct database?
