The JetOSSnapshotTruncateLog function enables log truncation for all instances that are part of the snapshot session.

Windows Vista:  JetOSSnapshotTruncateLog is introduced in Windows Vista.

JET_ERR JET_API JetOSSnapshotTruncateLog(
  __in          const JET_OSSNAPID snapId,
  __in          const JET_GRBIT grbit
);

Parameters

snapId

The identifier of the snapshot session.

All the databases are attached so the storage engine can compute and do the log truncation.

Return Value

This function returns the JET_ERR datatype with one of the following return codes. For more information about the possible ESE errors, see Extensible Storage Engine Errors and Error Handling Parameters.

Return code

Description

JET_errSuccess

The operation completed successfully.

JET_errInvalidGrbit

The grbit parameter is invalid.

JET_errOSSnapshotInvalidSequence

The snapshot session is not in the state in which a truncation can occur. Possible causes are:

On success, the log files for one or all the instances part of the snapshot session will be truncated, if possible.
