I'd recommend cnfs.  That would reduce expiry time also.

} And for change tradspool to cnfs => i lost all articles ? (i stop the server, change storage.conf, delete /var/spool/news/articles/* and start my innd ?), he have a change into news.daily ?

Considering your situation(1 day retention of the articles),
it's not good idea to convert article from tradspool to cnfs.
Rather, leave stored articles which will be purged in a day,
and just add cnfs entry before tradspool in storage.conf.
That would make it clean tradspool, also new articles will
be stored into cnfs.
