I am having issue with space I have one table data.Cluster_SqlServer_Database_File_UnstableSamples has over 15 B rows(15918979993) and data going back more then 6 months, I have the data purge for for Storage data set to 1 day ? This table is taking up around 800 GB or 1/3 of my DB it's not the only one that has some large row counts. 

What should I do about this how do I force a data clean up ?

    With a table that size its possible purging just can't keep up. You can just delete from that table where everything is over a certain date. 

    I would advise ensuring you have a valid working backup before deleting any data though.

    I will work on clearing the data out it getting smaller
