I’m sure by now most of you have encountered SharePoint databases that have a SQL Server database data file (.mdf) at a size that is as little as several hundred MB’s, yet the associated log file (.ldf) is ginormous and may be GB’s in size. This ginormous transaction log file will continue to grow until the drive containing the transaction log (t-log) runs out of disk space. At this point there is no room for transactions to be added to the t-log, so users cannot perform insert, update, or delete actions in SharePoint. This restriction is applied because every type of SQL data modification is first written to the transaction log and… Read MoreContinue Reading

Depending on what steps are used to create the Web Apps it sometimes creates the SharePoint database with a not-so-‘friendly’ database name and it may contain a ginormous GUID, (which I pronounce Goo-id) as part of the database name. When working with these databases it can become challenging to specify the name of the database within PowerShell or SQL Server so you’ll want to rename the database to a more user-friendly name. You may also decide you need to move the database to a different location on your hard drives, but you don’t want to recreate the Web… Read MoreContinue Reading

The Windows Explorer mode option in SharePoint is also very beneficial if you want to move content from one location to another location in SharePoint. However, if you have not made one quick configuration change to Internet Explorer the time it takes to perform the upload, copy, or move within SharePoint is horribly slow. You can follow these steps to significantly decrease the time necessary for these operations: In Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu and click Internet Options Click the Connections tab Click the LAN Settings button Uncheck the “Automatically detect settings” box Click OK until all… Read MoreContinue Reading
