Compact a Project

After a period of time, through general use, a project .eap file might occupy more disc space than necessary. You can move the project to a local drive and compact the file to recover the unused space.

Access

Ribbon

Configure > Model > Check Integrity > Manage .EAP File > Compact .EAP File

Compact a project

Action

Notes

  • Always compact projects on a local drive, never on a network drive
  • In the Corporate, Business and Software Engineering, System Engineering and Ultimate editions of Enterprise Architect, if security is enabled you must have Administer Database permission to compact a project
