truncate SQL 2005 Log file

Unlike SQL 2000, you can't conveniently just truncate the transaction
log. But you can do this:

1. Highlight the database-> Tasks->Detach..-> Click OK
2. Go to log file folder -> rename the xxx_log.ldf to something else
3. Highlight Databases->Attach…-> Click Add -> add the database MDF
file, highlight the log file in the lower part of the window and click
the 'Remove' button.
4. After this is done, you can verify the contents of the attached
database and then delete the log file.
