Was wondering whether we could get a straw poll on whether or when people proactively compacted their or their clients' FileMaker files, or adopt an 'if it isn't broke don't fix it approach'?


Typically the savings we see are between 35 and 40% on files, thereby reducing a file size of say 500Mb down to just over 300Mb.


Our approach on this is 'if and when we have time' but it is not a priority. However, as the number of years use increases, we do eventually do this.
