I have table which is big enough, phpmyadmin shows that it takes more than 40Gb space. I can't remove data from it, but I've figure out one thing: there is one field which is described as
There are always latin symbols.
I thought that changing collation to latin1_general_ci would reduce the Table size.
I've tried this out on small version of it with 200 Mb but I did not get expected result :(
Why so ?
