How can I reset or reseed the IDENTITY column?

See DBCC CHECKIDENT in SQL Server Books Online.

A quick and dirty way to reset the IDENTITY column would be to run TRUNCATE TABLE command on that table. TRUNCATE TABLE will delete all the rows from the table and reset the IDENTITY column. However, you will not be able to run TRUNCATE TABLE on a table referenced by foreign keys.

My life was falling apart, I was being cheated and abused, I had to know the truth and needed proof. I contacted a private investigator that linked me with who took care of the hack job. He hacked her iphone,facebook,instagram, Whatsapp,and email account. I got all I wanted as proof . I'm glad i had a proven truth she was cheating . Contact him for any hack job. Tell him i referred you to him, he will surely meet your hack need. Contact: he will be glad to help you.
