Junior dev decides to clear space for brewing boss, doesn't know what 'LDF' is, sooo...


The Great thing about SQL Server is how easy it is to set up and use with a little bit of knowledge. Unfortunately that's also its biggest problem. I've lost count of the number of databases I've seen where its set to full recovery model but no transaction log backup. Back when I first started I was very helpful and would set up the backup. These days I just send a warning email to the DBA... and then re-send it when the server falls over as its run out of space (I know I'm Evil, but in my defence, I find people learn far quicker from mistakes).
