Transaction log fills up quickly when deleting large SPWebs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I was hoping someone would be able to help me out with this problem that I am facing.  I am currently moving sites to their own site collections.  This is working out just fine.  But when it comes down to deleting the source site, my transaction logs grow so big that it eventually kills my space available on the drive they reside on.  I am currently in the process of deleting a 21GB site and the transaction log file is already up to 41.5GBs.  I had already set the database to Simple recovery mode.  Can anyone out there give me some advice on how to control the transaction logs so that I can delete the rest of my sites that need to be deleted?

    Best Regards,
