I have a friend who has a website and asked me for help. I often use MySQL databases but never Oracle databases. And unfortunately he has an Oracle database, so I can't find a solution.

The available disk space is slowly decreasing... I delete a lot of lines from the table but that doesn't solve his problem. The database continues to take up disk space slowly.

I read that LOB files do not return disk space, even if you delete data.

  • How can I reorganize LOB files easily with a simple request?
  • (or/and) How can I recover disk space on Oracle?

1 Answer 1


Only deleting lines from tables will not gain the disk space. You need to reclaim the table space after deleting data.

I would suggest go through the Oracle documents on reclaiming space.
