Subject Re: Delete data from stored documents

I have some data indexed that I don’t need any more. My question is if I can delete the
field definition from the schema.xml and do an optimize and the fields “magically” disappears
(and free space from disk).

Re-index data to delete fields is to expensive in collections with hundreds of millions of

Optimize operation seems to be a good place to shrink to documents ...
