I have a serious problem here. I have a production SQL 2005. Tempdb has grown 80 GB when I was doing the important operation in one of the tables in a database in this machine. Now everything finished. I saw tempdb has grown to 80GB I don't much space
on this Server. I am left with 100 GB free space on the server. I tried shrinking the mdf file of tempdb. It executes successfully but no space is released to OS. Is restarting the SQL Server the only way to release the space. Can you please help me to release
the space ? Is there any way i can do it without restarting the SQL service.
Please need some help here.
