Make a backup and delete the original transaction log

If your database is not involved in replication and you have limited disk space on your computer, you can delete the contents of the online transaction log (truncate the log) when you make a backup. To recover your database when using this type of backup, you must use every backup copy made since the last full backup during recovery from media failure on the database file.
