Type the word CLEANUP and press Enter to continue. Press <Esc> if you do not want to proceed at this time. You may be able to go and do some chores while the system processes the database. The time needed to re-sort your files depends on how much data you have entered into the Jewelry Shopkeeper and the speed of your computer. During the first few months of owning the program, this procedure may only require a few minutes. After several years it may require much longer.


To avoid some extra checking of the regular ‘CLEANUP’ feature, there is a ‘CLEANUP QUICKER’ option. To run the quicker cleanup, type the word CLEANUP QUICKER when prompted above. You should still run the regular ‘CLEANUP’ at least once a week.


When the cleanup is complete, the System Maintenance Menu will re-appear.
