db-wal files are very large

Post by tstoddard »

*********PLEASE DISREGARD OR DELETE THIS POST, I READ THE SIZES INCORRECTLY**********

Since I have just started using a new PC, I've been paying close attention to various files and directories for various reasons. I just now looked at my Photo Supreme catalog directory and noticed that the photosupreme.cat.db-wal file is over 50% of the size of my cat.db file. (the db file is about 21GB and the db-wal file is over 11GB). The thumbs db is not quite as bad but the thumbs db-wal file is over 5GB.

From searching about db-wal files, I've seen posts indicating that the db-wal files will continue to grow if certain sql actions are not properly terminated or closed. Should my db-wal files be that large or is Photo Supreme doing something wrong?
