I am a programmer. I am a software architect. I am a father.

C# and SQL are my languages of choice. I prefer Stored Procedures, compile time over runtime errors, tight and clean over multifunctional, and finally Coke over Pepsi.

I currently work for Magenic and am doing Windows Phone and Windows 8 development in my spare time.

comment SQL 2008 - Transaction log is full
If the simple recovery mode is sufficiently granular for your environment, then you can change to it and reduce the resources used by your transaction log.

comment What is DBHammer and why is it a scheduled job on my SQL Server machine?
Ouch, that looks more like a problem with the drive or raid controller. Get your backups of information and/or move the drives to another machine and do backups there. It could be that the DBHammer and DBOlympics are meant to be stress testing the system in some way, which is leading to the pegged condition. Are you running in a RAID environment? What Level?

Is SQL Server 2008 Express all that you have? When I run my full version Management Studio against Express I get the storage node, properties, and a gui for building the catalog: screencast.com/t/csA5Y5TEvh
