xx Compress db
« Thread started on: Apr 30th, 2017, 6:22pm »

Hi

I have configured Mega to backup my Stickies db, but the file has grown big (8mb) so every tiny change I do on a stickie, Mega takes a couple of minutes to backup (yes, I have a slow connection). I have 147 stickies, all with text only so I wonder why it's so big huh. Anyway, is there a way to compress or clean the db?

Regards,
Djago

Stored stickies are kept in a mdb database file. As changes are made to the database, this file can become larger than it needs to be. Pressing control-shift-c in the Manage dialog will shrink the file. There's usually no need to use this command, and it is available for completeness only.

Thanks! That hit the spot. It went from 8100kb to 137kb!
I don't know why it says "There's usually no need to use this command"
