PRIMARY file group is full

P: n/a
Hi there,

I've just run some DTS packages on my test sqlserver (Which has limited
hard disk space and memory) and all the tasks have failed, due to
'PRIMARY' file group is full

Is there a query or script I can run to resolve this problem??

Could send a query to whomeever holds you money to get more hardware.

The message says that SQL Server cannot autogrow the database, because
there is not space on the disk. By default SQL Server grows by 10%, so
if your database is 20 GB, SQL Server tries to grow 2 GB. If you think
you can fit your data into these 2 GB, then you lower that number to
squeeze out the rest from your disk.

Else you will have to try to free up some disk space. If the log for
the database is on the same disk, and you could live with simple
recovery, you could change to simple recovery, and then issue
BACKUP LOG db WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY. You have also have to do a DBCC
SHRINKFILE on the log. But before you do any of this, check how big
your log is.
