    Hi Albert,

    Follow below steps

    1) Using SLG2 delete the data based on time frame. Specify correct date inputs , client and user settings.

    2) Verify from database table using SE16, whether entries have got deleted for the input parameters mentioned in your execution

    3) Post deletion perform table reorg to shrink the table size.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Albert,

    If your DB is Oracle, please use the BR Tools for table reorganization to shrink the table. you can do reorganization in online.

    Please refer the below link:

    If you are using SQL database,the space is still not released after the mass deletion of logs, you can try to shrink the database or data files. and

    Note: Please take necessary precaution methods before you perform the activity for safer side. (taking backup of the db, performing the activity when no user logged in SAP etc.,)

    Thanks and regards,
