Compacting and repairing the database: Access 2013 Essential Training

Additionally, if you choose to delete an object or a group of records, the file space that was used by the deleted items will not be returned immediately. This can sometimes cause your database to run slowly. By compacting and repairing the database, you are able to reclaim space and tidy up log files. This video will teach you how to do just that.
