I've never done anything like this in WebFocus, and our WebFocus staff is limited to a team of three. Neither one of my teammates have ever done this either. So, I'd like to ask if there are any caveats to be aware of at this time.

The default is to use a FOCUS database you can look at your configuration and it will tell you. On page 64 of the manual you referenced it shows you how to delete records based on a date range. I think it is best to not schedule this task but to run manually. You should definitely make a backup of the database before running the maintenance. If it is a FOCUS database then you simply copy the .foc file to a safe place.
Thank you for using Focal Point!
