Here's the message (and Dale's reply) that Dale was referring to:

Do this is small blocks (15 days to one month). Then once you have
trimmed out December (and noted the tempdb requirements). Download
2.1.8, and run the charges. This will clear out the rest and do
the call history. Trying to do call history on 9 months of data
would probably be a little involved. :)

Delete From Calls Where CallDate < "7/1/96"

and keep uping the month. Excuting once per month.
