How to manage Transaction Log File during Data Load

ADD LOG FILE (NAME = ‘TY1_Log3’, FILENAME = ‘F:\TY1_Log3.ldf’, SIZE = 20080 MB, FILEGROWTH = 5024 MB)


By using the T-SQL code will receive the detail of log size and the growth.

Once we execute the above T-SQL statement, our log file TY1_Log3.ldf will be added on F drive to the database TY1.

Always ensure whenever you try to add the log file to a drive it must have enough space.
