current size of the database is 2.36 TB. Monthly around 100 GB of data will be added to this partitioned table. We can increase the drive size by adding more space. But I am looking for options to reduce the data size by file compression or data compression.
My recommendation would be to make one of the file groups Read-Write, run REORGANIZE on all indexes, and then see how much free space (not data, not index) there is.
Also, when you set the individual file groups to Read-Only, are you seting the "SINGLE_USER" mode of the database?
