For example, the Emerald database used to say it had a total Data Size of 75Mb (the size of the Emerald device and the EmeraldLog device combined). Now it says it has a Data Size of 25Mb (the size of the Emerald device alone) and a Log Size of 70Mb. There is only 1.39Mb of Data Space available. Does this seem right? Should I expand the Emerald Data Device?

You probablu will need to. One thing you should do is run the
checkdb.sql script and then recalculate the size of the DB.

I would see how it goes after expanding the database and running
the checkdb.
