I just started using SQL server management Studio, i have a database and a table with 498591 records.

I have a sql script which remove duplicates.

Whilst running the script, 2.5 hours later i get a popup saying space on E:\ is running low.

At the end it said query completed with errors, "The Transaction log for the database 'tempdb' is full".

I checked the E:\ and it was full, only had 10mb available, E:\ is also where the tempdb file was.

What would be the best course of action? I assume i need to rerun the script again as there is still 498591 records.
