Reclaiming disk space [closed]

I understand that Multichain is an extension of Bitcoin, and section 7 of the bitcoin specification at talks about reclaiming disk space from spent transactions. Does Multichain support this capability?

Not currently, in fact bitcoin itself doesn't yet support this kind of per-transaction pruning. Note also that if the metadata in transactions (e.g. stream items) is important, then you wouldn't want to prune a transaction even if all its spendable/regular outputs were spent.
