It's important to do maintenance on your database once in awhile. Compacting Repairing your database keeps it running smoothly and minimizes the file size. If you find that your database is slowing down or not functioning smoothly, Access may need a repair, or when you delete records out of your database Access does not reclaim the disk space, and your file size does not get smaller. To solve both of these issues, perform a Compact Repair on it. You can do that from two different places. One is in the Backstage View under the File tab.
When you click on Info, you can see Compact and Repair right here. The other is on the Database tools Ribbon. The button is right here. When I click on it, Access will trim down the file size and keep itself running smoothly. Be sure to do a Compact and Repair periodically, especially after large deletions.
