Deleting a Spectrum Database

A Spectrum database contains reference data such as address data used to validate an address, or spatial data used for geocoding. You can delete Spectrum databases that are no longer used on your system. For example, you may want to delete a Spectrum database after installing an updated version of the database.

Important: Before deleting any resource, verify that there are no jobs or services using it. Deleting a resource that is referenced by jobs or services will cause those jobs or services to fail.
  1. Open the Management Console.
  2. Go to Resources > Spectrum Databases
  3. Put a check mark next to the Spectrum database you want to delete then click the Delete button .

Deleting a Spectrum database resource does not delete the database files themselves. After deleting the resource you must delete the database files if you want to free up space on your system.
