    Default Is There A Limit To How Many Megabytes You Can Use In A Database??

    I have recently gone on a major cd buying spree. I already have 3,455 cd's
    in my database, with over 100 more on the way. I have noticed that the more
    cd's I add, the longer it takes to load up. And now today, I had problems entering
    the database. It kept freezing up, so I had to reboot my pc to get it to load again.
    I just deleted a few cd's to make sure this doesn't happen again. I am up to 290.38
    megabytes. So my question is, is there a limit, because it seems to me that I have
    reached it. Is there anything I can do to continue on with this same database, or
    will I need to start a new one. Like a part 2. I REALLY don't want to do this though.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Lance.

    Hmm... not sure why your database is so large..

    this is may stats...
    Size: 33.17 megabytes
    Total records: 7030

    Frederf, yours is the typical size of the db,
    maybe Lanciferion's database contains hi-scan artworks stored inside, instead of storing them in an external folder
    (in this case, even if it has stored inside small jpg/gif pictures of almost 35kb each, if you multiply by 3.445 you'll reach easily 120mb only for storing pictures data...)

    Yes. That is exactly why. My images are large
    sometimes, and that is obviously becoming an
    issue. I guess no one has a solution.

    I see Andrei told you the solution, maybe I was cryptical when I said to store them in an external folder, what I meant is what Andrei showed in that thread.

    Andrei, do you have news for us about the new db-engine you were working on ?

    Cheers all
