The application-note purpose is to guide the user in performing the SIS file structure optimization (Defragmentation).
All the redundancies and the unused spaces are removed and the SIS file compacted and packed. This task allows to reduce the file overall size.
The defragmentation is strongly suggested after any editing task of the Image-Set, Channels, Planes or Time points.
It is also useful when the stitching, the volume fusion or additional dataset import are done. Check the file status always before transferring it to the permanent storage unit or before sharing it by upload to any transfer services.
