Over time, your company file will grow considerably in size. As you enter transactions, then remove or purge them, the file will have unused areas that once contained these transactions.
These unused areas can affect the efficiency with which operations are performed in the company file. We recommend that you use the Optimisation Assistant to remove the unused areas in the company file and keep your accounting software running efficiently.
This task requires single-user access. For more information, see Single-user file locking for special tasks.
