After deleting your data, you must compress your database to reduce the file size.

Browse to the CWNPFB.CWD file inside \Program Files\CurrentWare\cwServer and click on the Compress button. The database will be compressed to reduce file size.
Go to Tools > Auto Delete URL Scheduler. Enable this option to clean up your database automatically. When enabled, BrowseReporter will only keep data from a period of time. You can define how long you want to keep data.
Go to Tools > Database Backup Scheduler. Enable this option to begin automatically backing up the CurrentWare database on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
