How can I reclaim unused space?

How can I reclaim unused space?
Thank you for the question. It would be helpful to understand what the application is (e.g., a database or other application). Each application will have its own way to reclaim space and return it to the operating system that you are working with. I would suggest reviewing the documentation that came with your application to determine the best process to reclaim the space.
