sp_shrinkDB.txt

August 31, 2001



This is a modified version of the sp_shrinkDB procedure posted earlier on Swynk.com. It does the same things as the original but has been changed to accept a database name and a backup path as parameters. It now creates and uses a backup device and also a loop to load values into the temp table. There are comments throughout the source code explaining what is going on.

The script has been updated as of 11/26/01 with a modification that allows it to be used on multiple databases at the same time and that deletes the temporary backup files during the cleanup phase. You can comment these parts out if you want to use the script for part of your regular maintenance and backup routines.
