We have a large content database with 200 GB space in SP 2013 and it consists of two large site collections with 100 GB space each.
We plan to permanently delete one site collection of size 100GB in content database, with running gradual delete timer job manually.
Post deletion, I believe we can not reclaim the free space from content database.
We need to reclaim the space, so is database shrink operation recommended in this case and what would be the performance impacts?
Are there any other ways to reclaim the unused/free/white space from content database with Microsoft recommended limits?
