While trying to delete a table in a database 'xxx' following error occurs.

"The transaction log for database 'xxx' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases"

Hopefully this helps another user. Anyways, this occurred in our systems because backups were not running and the log file was configured with a maximum size limit. We adjusted the size limit to "unlimited" and this resolved the issue. Then, once the backup jobs were running successfully, the size of the file also went back to normal.

so, what is your question ? use a tool or manually do what it says - look at the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases

Or save less XXX in the database. :-)
