I have noticed that after deleting records by Jackcess the file size is not reduced. Could you add some "compact" method to utilize space used by deleted records?

    it's definitely a tricky problem. you will basically see the same behavior in ms access, which is why they have the "compact and repair" option (which basically just copies everything to a new database file). i've contemplated trying to add a "compact and repair" option to jackcess, but i'm not sure if jackcess currently understands enough of the access format to safely run such an operation.
