When you use the Database Maintenance Wizard to create a plan, which includes the option to shrink a database, if the data from any of the tables in that database move from one filegroup to another, the plan does not shrink the database successfully.


Shrink the database by using the DBCC SHRINKDATABASE command.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0.
