Optimizing disk occupation

Iseries database expert Kent Milligan explains how to optimize disk occupation with the Reuse Deleted Records option.

The size of some files of our data base grows so fast. What can I do to optimize disk occupation?
I would suggest verifying if your database tables and files are using the Reuse Deleted Records option. This is on by default with SQL-created tables. This attribute can be changed with the CHGPF command by specifying *YES for the REUSEDLT parameter.
