We are here to talk about mistakes we used to make. There is one mistake that I am going to discuss and is something that I used to do 10 years ago, obviously I do not do this anymore.
I USED TO SHRINK DATABASES
There, I said it! Why did I do this? Well I never knew any better. Why shouldn’t you do this?
There are situations where a database shrink operation makes sense. Those cases are quite rare.
