You may need to truncate the transaction log from within SQL Enterprise
double-click on Emerald and you'll see the [truncate] button there. That
should do the trick.

SQL 6.0 running Emerald. I have tried "dump tran emerald to diskdump with
no_log" but the database does not show any more free space? Now, I
understand that sql logs every transaction but with just over 2,000
customers in Emerald, how could it need 250mb of disk space to not
complain? I could accept 70 or 80mb. Is there some concept I'm missing
