How long do deleted items stay in the WSS Database? (not recyclebin)


  • Hey,
    some wally uploaded more items than we have planned capacity for into our WSS 3.0 site.

    I've deleted the extraneous content, emptied the recycle bin and also truncated the log file to reclaim some disk space. The main .mdf file seems excessively large still, and i can see traces of these uploaded docs in the dbo.alluserdata table.

    I have performed a shrink on the .mdf file also, but the size of that file is still huge. Will Sharepoint automatically release this storage space eventually????
