Weekly survey: how do you manage your data file sizes?

In this week's survey I'd like to know how you manage the sizes of your database *data* files (remember we've already done log file size management). I'll report on the results around 6/21/09.

I say this every week in the PS, but I'm moving it up here because I don't like having to delete comments and send email, *please* no comments on this post – wait for the survey results post to avoid skewing the answers. I'm very interested in your reasoning, but not until everyone else responds.



As always, a big Thanks! for contributing to the blog/community by responding. Please shoot me an email (Contact button, bottom left of the blog), or ping me on Twitter (@PaulRandal) if you have an idea for a good survey.

PS Thanks to Steve Jones (of SQL Server Central fame) for suggesting this week's topic on Twitter.
