Note: This section applies only to on-premise installations. If your installation is hosted by Mitratech, you do not need to perform any of these operations.
To perform any of the maintenance operations on a vault, right-click the vault name in the M-Files Admin Tool and select Maintenance.
The following list describes some of the recommended maintenance operations:
- The Optimize Database operation does not need to be run regularly. It is automatically taken care of by MFiles.
- The Rebuild Full-text Search Index operation should be run twice a year for large repositories (with hundreds of thousands of objects and hundreds of gigabytes of data).
- The Reset Thumbnail Images operation only needs to be used if the thumbnail images are not working correctly.
- The Verify and Repair (Thorough) operation should be run twice a year for all repositories.
