You can't compress a qvd.

You can load less data into it, or you can store it in a qvw instead and do a binary load

Before creating QVD's Qlikview perform a 10x reduction ...what we could do is ,

*try to delete the unwanted columns in qvd

*try to build you linking keys in numeric format so that it will take less space

QVD is already in compress data you can do some of this.

1. Break this QVD into sub Qvds.

2. Break Qvd into small size like based on the Year, Month, Area, Zone etc to better use only that Qvds.

You can save some space for example

  • Splitting datetime fields into a date and a time field
  • Reducing the length of your strings (if you have and can reduce them)
