Re: Compact Database Warning

I tried to compact overnight last night and get an error that the database is locked. This morning the same again.

This isn't a compact prompted by the 14 day message, it is a compact that I need to do because I have finished cataloguing my last big batch.

Re: Compact Database Warning

What is the important reason for introducing this which is too important to ignore A 96% reduction of reported issues that are related to users not compacting.

Re: Compact Database Warning

What is the important reason for introducing this which is too important to ignore? Insisting that a database which is more or less static is compacted every two weeks is stupid.

Re: Compact Database Warning

Cancel the compact message 3. Select Catalog -> Compact Current Catalog from the hamburger menu 4. Only compact the Cata...

Re: Compact Database Warning

The rest of the time the database is mainly static apart from minor corrections and doesn't need to be co...

Re: Compact Database Warning

Please either improve the trigger for this message, so that it is based on additions/deletions/need to compact rather than days, or provide the 'don't ask me again' type option that exists for many other warning type messages. Compacting every 14 days increases the risk of database corruption so com...

Compact Database Warning

A recent change to Photo Supreme has introduced a warning that I haven't compacted my database for 15 days. The only way to get rid of it appears to be to click the Compact Now option. How do I stop this warning appearing? I have 140000 files catalogued and my DB is 13Gb with my thumbs DB 361Gb. Com...

Re: 'database or disk is full (0)' when compacting databases

I have the same problem when compacting my thumbs database.

The drive containing the database has 518Gb free and the thumbs database being compacted is 157Gb

The C: drive (which isn't used unless there are some hard coded temporary files going there) has 117Gb free
