How to compress the WINS database

You can use the Jetpack.exe utility shipped with Windows NT Server to compress the WINS database.

  1. Go to the %systemroot%\system32\wins directory.
  2. Type Net Stop WINS and press [Enter] to stop the WINS service.
  3. Type Jetpack WINS.MDB TMP.MDB and press [Enter] to compress the database.
  4. When the compression process is finished, type Net Start WINS and press [Enter] to restart the WINS service.

The Jetpack utility actually compacts the WINS.MDB into the TMP.MDB and then deletes the WINS.MDB and copies the TMP.MDB to the WINS.MDB.
