Wow, running CLRPFM actually increased it from 32gb to 33gb!

Seriously, run CHGPF against the file. See page 2 for the size and extents.
At least, that's how I handle those babies.

Do a CLRPFM, much better if you are 100% sure it has no records. Faster and
better.

Subject: How to re-org an empty file

Afternoon all
We have a file on our test system that is taking up 32 gig of space, BUT
contains no records (zero, zilch, nada) Re-org I say.
Re-org I attempt, and failure with the following message
CPF2995
No members in file xxxxxxxxxx or no data in member xxxxxxxxxx.

Anyone have any ideas?
