Vault Maintenance

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.
