Hello together,
I have the problem that some user use the internal notes webbrowser. The problem is now that the perweb.nsf grows and grows and grows... there doesn´t seamed to be a limit. The problem is now that the notesclient lost performance when this DB is so big.
So I would like to have a agent which can be enabled by the user and delete unused stuff from this DB when he close the lotus notes client.

Does the space saver option "remove documents not modified in the last XX days" in replication settings work for local databases? I think it does.

@Harkpabst Meliantrop

yes it does, but only for a poweruser, here are some reasons why it doesn´t "work" for 99% from the normal users.

1.) You as admin couldn´t enable it for all workstations
2.) The user must know how to set it up. If you try to explain it to your users it took your time and the user will ask you why Lotus Notes isn´t so easy like Outlook.
3.) The user must click on the icon. This took time or they will forgot it. Result: they will never do it (or do you know some people who delete stuff from the tempfolder???)
4.) The user will see a "strange error message" and will click on no, because he doesn´t know what this means to him. Or they will call you and ask what they sould do now and this will take your time.

Such a feature should be easy. The "remove documents not modified in the last XX days" wouldn´t work for the most users I think.
