If you have records with fields that are populated by information dependent on other fields, you can speed up your data entry e.g. create an Industry Picklist on an Organisation, where the Picklist selection auto-populates the SIC code in a separate field. See our example here.

Audit data is often a good place to look if you would like to reduce the size of your database(s). Historic audit data can be exported so that you can clean your database and free up space, this is explained here. Your export can be saved elsewhere should you ever need it for future reference. You can export your audit data from your Landing page or a Report. When exporting from a Landing page make sure that you add a column for everything you would like to export. Use filters to limit the data, for instance to be prior to a certain date.
