Optimize the database sounds good, but what does it actually do.
Thanks. I forgot the main principle: RTFM and underestimated your work. Sorry!
No worries and no RTFM from me.
Just a friendly reminder of the helpful resource available in the Help.
SO this “internal backup” then is deleted automatically once it has been optimized. correct?
An Optimize will remove the older of the two metadata backups and write a new set, so you always have two rollback points.
