I am executing COMPACT but with no result.
Database has 5.3Gb.
I deleted about 20.000 records and tried to COMPACT, but my database is still 5.3Gb.
We should check it, but as a workaround you may try to Clone the database.
3) Do you mean you want Compacting of a db under working VSERVER?
Well, this should be a feature request. We ware going do something similar.
4) I wonder why you think this is a required step?
After deleting 20K records, I think users will start to add new records and they will automatically reuse that empty space.
