Online DDFS Compact is a process that allows to free up space on a CFA storage. It converts the conditional free space, i.e. blocks reserved by DDFS, into the actual free space.

The process starts automatically each day at a given time, and runs in the background.

To set the time when the process starts:

  1. In the CFA Management Console, go to Server > Storage.

  2. Click Edit next to Compact Online Time of Day, and then set the time.

Although the process is automatic, you can start it manually, if needed:

  1. In the CFA Management Console, go to Server > Storage.

  2. Click Start next to Compact Online.
