    Hi Krishna,

    That's not a mandatory step. That is needed only if you are deleting the company to free up space on your SQL server. In your case, you mentioned that the company is not in use and hence you want to delete it. You can perform the other steps mentioned -

    1. Clean up transactions running the SysDatabaseTransDelete class.

    2. Delete the company from Company accounts.

    thanks for the response.

    In the thread I see the words, 'some SQL maintenance to shrink the database'

    could you please elaborate, how to do this activity?
