I have a database that uses filestream. We write out data to filestream records, and then later delete the records.
But periodic database backups (to disk) that I do seem to keep growing. So I think I need to do something to clean up the deleted records.
I read a lot online about forcing garbage collection but don't understand everything. I'm using SQL Server 2008.
Is it possible to give me the commands I can run to force the garbage collection?
