Database Maintenance

Database Maintenance presents you with several options for maintaining your CV11 database from within Collect!. By default, complete maintenance rebuilds and fixes all of Collect!'s individual databases.

We recommend you backup critical data files before running maintenance since, if the machine is failing, the maintenance, while manipulating data files, may cause undesirable consequences and, potentially, loss of data.
