Understanding compacting the thumbnail database

Post by Mike Buckley » 14 Sep 14 15:20

This is just a minor tip that when compacting the thumbnail database, whether compacting it by itself or also along with the catalog database, you need to observe the progress in the Activity panel to have visual confirmation that the thumbnail database has indeed been compacted. That's because the dialog that informs you that compacting has been completed refers only to the catalog database, not the thumbnail database. On the other hand, I'm confident that you can assume the thumbnail database has been successfully compacted without keeping your eye on the Activity panel even though the pertinent dialog doesn't make explicit reference to it.
