Sharepoint 2013 large log file fix

I have been working on SharePoint 2013 lately and was wondering why so much HD space is disappearing.

It appears the SharePoint_Config_Log was very large (over 40gb).

The link below will help you with solving this problem.

(I give full credit to the website owner above however if you need the fix I will paste it below)

1.Open up Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio
2.New Query
3.Type in the following and press execute.

USE [master]
GO
ALTER DATABASE[SharePoint_Config] SET RECOVERY SIMPLE WITH NO_WAIT
GO
USE [SharePoint_Config]
GO
DBCC SHRINKFILE (‘SharePoint_Config_Log’)
GO

Log has now shrunk 🙂

Remote Desktop Manager

Remote Desktop Manager is a remote desktop program that will allow you to centralise all of your remote connections, passwords, configuration settings all in the one program. This program has to be checked out, it is very cool!

You can add MS RDP, Citrix, Ftp, Intel AMT, LogMeIn, PC Anywhere, Radmin, Remote Assistance, ScreenConnect, TeamViewer, Telnet, SSH, RAW, rLogin, VNC, VPN, Web Browser and X Windows. When you add the connection and go into the properties you will see a huge selection of options to configure the connection.

The best thing is, it’s free. Once you download and register it will give you the full edition and after 30 days it will place it into standard edition, still with a lot of features.
