I'm very new to SharePoint 2010 Administration and have been asked to handle our Content DB Size issues. While not tremendously large right now we would like to handle the situation early.
I've performed several searches and have read many posts but I don't seem to be able to find a solution I need or understand. Our Content DB is growing too large, from what I can tell I need to create a new Content DB and then move the site collection from the 'old' Content DB to the 'new' Content DB.
I'm looking for best practices, how to get this done, efficiently, doing this so my SharePoint site continues to work, and in a way that my headaches are kept to a minimum.
This SharePoint system and the Content DB is all still a little foggy to me right now. In the future, after I understand this process, I'll probably be moving at least one site (contains tremendous amount of documents and added to on a daily basis) to it's own Content DB.
Thank you in advance for your help with this.
