Remove Old Data...

I am looking for a lesson on the remove old data feature, including when to use, does it release the memory reserved by the db for that info.  Will it improve the responsiveness of the db after a large number (5,000) records have been deleted?  ETC.  Anything I need to be careful in using this feature?

 

I have a handy admin reference book that came with out Media, but where do I get a full manual on these types of features, particularly the diag tools?

JW,

 

Yes, removing old data will improve the performance in the database.  Just remember, when removing old data, its a permanent deletion.  You will not be able to restore the data without a backup.
