    SQL Database growing too large

    khughes Virtuoso

      We run our vCenter database with SQL 2000, and our backup for the vCenter database is growing upwards to 18GB.  I'm 98% sure of the answer and not a SQL expert but looking for some confirmation and to give out some free points. 

       

      There should be no reason why I can't change the vcenter database backup plan from keeping 3 weeks of backup files and transaction log files to only 2 weeks and eliminate about 5-6GB of data.   The only reason for keeping it that long is for restoring if need be correct?
