Compact large object column data

If this check box is selected, the operation compacts all pages containing large object data. The data types image, text, ntext, varchar(max), nvarchar(max), varbinary(max), and xml are large object data types. Compacting this data can result in better disk space utilization. The option is ignored if large object columns are not present.
