Where did the database optimization functions go?

We wanted to test whether Filemaker Server 15 / Filemaker Pro Advanced 15 reduces the database size if data is deleted from the database.


We duplicated a project in our database: the database size increased with 3 MB.
We deleted the same project instantly. But the size of the database did not decrease with 3 MB.

If this is standard than that explains why the database size only increases and never decreases.

Can this have impact on the overall performance of FIlemaker?



In earlier Filemaker versions we had compressing and optimizing tools in Filemaker.
Where did these tools go?
