I have a huge binary format data in postgresql which make my database quite heavy. How can i reduce size of binary format data ?

Any help will be appreciated


Is it acceptable to export and reimport smaller files? Are they images? Are you on Windows or Linux? What version of OpenERP are you running? Have you looked in ~/.local directory of your OpenERP installation?

I know of no automatic function for that. It'd require a special development. Not difficult, but not free either. Sometimes just going for a better performing hosting/server makes the most sense. What is the reason? Slow connection? Small disk?
