You want to execute a compact operation on a Lotus Notes/Domino database from within Notes. In the Notes database, from the File menu, you choose Database > Properties > Info panel > Compact. The following message appears in the status bar:
- “Your request to compact this database is now being carried out”.
However, after waiting several minutes, you notice that the size of the database reported on the Properties Info panel has not changed.
You verify that the Notes database is not logged (Transactional Logging is enabled) and that you have access to the Compact button (manager access in the ACL) since these could be reasons why the database size has not reduced
