I deleted a large portion of the data from a table but the reserved space wasn’t released. Rebuild indexes didn’t solve the issue. Is there anything else that can be done?

Table_Name 2349797 13589152 KB 13319344 KB 144904 KB 124904 KB

When I delete all the rows (in test), there is still some reserved space.

Table_Name 0 2670648 KB 2664040 KB 88 KB 6520 KB

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (SP1) - 10.50.2806.0 (X64)

Thanks a lot!

Have you tried to shrink the table/file?
