Some free space in the repository is required for just about anything to 
succeed. Both markForCollection and reclaimAll will consume free space 
while they move things around, but will eventually result in an increase 
in free space.

It's best to monitor the repository and take action before it actually 
becomes full. Once the repository is actually full, your only options 
are to restore from a full backup and tranlogs, or to add space to the 
extent(s) to give the system some free space.

Chapter 6 of the System Administration Guide gives a lot more detail on 
these issues.
