Compressing Files

Postby Ronbyram » Tue Dec 27, 2016 8:47 am

Hi Merry Christmas and Happy New year....

Question, is there a need to Compress any of these group files after we start downloading data to them?
I have notice one folder / group file that has a lot of new data and seems to be growing larger on my Hard drive and wanted to compress if possible?

The setting "Storage Age" controls how many days of headers you store. You might want to shrink that down. It should prevent the header storage from growing any larger than it currently is.

There's really not much compression you have to do because the records are already compressed.
