I have never run RCLSTG but was told all 400 shops should do so periodically.
No one could tell me why.

Though I can't say that RCLSTG (reclaim storage) will not regain some disk
space, I'd be upset to learn that it was useful on a regular basis for Notes
storage. RCLSTG is an extreme measure to be used only when necessary.

I think IBM made a mistake when naming this command. It seems too many people
get the idea that it's actually useful on a regular basis such as weekly. In my
experience, if a site finds regular RCLSTG to be useful, there is is something
going very wrong in the system.
