I have a 12 gb database. It is configured to automaticaly grow in blocks of 250 MB. The avaible space at the E.M. DB is 0.0 MB. but the HD free space is 13GB. I've tryed to check the DB wiht the CHECKDATABASE command and all was right. I've also forced the DB size to 13 GB. Doing that the avaible space contiunes to 0.0 MB but the allocated space shows 1 GB avaible. After that I can work for a time until a srink operation is made, which return me to the original situation.
