Re: Optimization company file

Hi Yanscobain,


The time it takes to optimise a company file will depend on the size of your file and the general speed of your computer.

As your company file is quite large 3 hours does sound like an expected amount of time to Optimise, this will depend on the speed of your computer as well however.


To get the best results for optimisation you just want to make sure that you are optimising on the computer you use to store your datafile and that no other programs are running while you're optimising the file.

Kind regards,

Re: Optimization company file

Hi Yans,


As 1GB is quite large for a data file this will affect performance of the software. Generating reports and general use of the software will be slowed down.


You can either purge data from the file to reduce size or create a new data file.
