If you have disk space, you could do a copy/rename to eliminate the
deleted records, or copy to different file then copy back to the
original. The deleted records will be omitted on the copy.

We have file with 51 million current records, and 30 million deleted
records. I need to get rid of the deleted records. I restored a copy of
the file a few days ago it finished in about 15 - 20 minutes. If I recall
it takes much longer than that to reorg that many records. I'm trying to
get an idea of how long it will take. The file is keyed, but has no
logicals. Is restore faster?
