Managing files


Use the Files tab of Tablespace Editor to manage the list of datafiles (for the permanent tablespace) or tempfiles (for the temporary tablespace).

 

Tablespace Editor - Files

 

The list displays the files as a grid with the following columns: Name, Size, Reuse, Autoextend, Next, Max unlimited, Max size. If more convenient, you can change the order of the columns by dragging their headers horizontally.

 

Click a column caption to sort items by values of this column in the ascending or the descending mode.

 

Right-click an item within the list to call the context menu allowing you to add a new file and specify its properties using the New File dialog, edit the selected file using the Edit File dialog, or delete the selected file.

 

File management tools are also available through the Navigation bar of Tablespace Editor.
