Subject DELETE - but database file size remains - what do I do wrong?
Author thoba1

when I delete e.g. 200 MB of data from a 400 MB database file, I can
confirm (using IBO Console) that the data has actually dissapeared
from the tables but the size fo the database file on disk is still
400 MB? What do I do wrong --> I fear that I do something very
unpleasant to the garbage collection mechanism? I use D7 (IBX) and
embedded server v1.5.1... and I don't understand, since I obviously
close the delete transaction correctly or otherwise the data would
not dissapear from the table? Why does the garbage collection not
decrease the size of the DB file when I disconnect from the DB?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance!
