I have a lot of feeds that i get based on key word searches. I need to do this
When i am away for a few days and come back and need to clean the older feeds
out, it takes quite a while to delete say 1000 entries. RSS Bandit is unusable
for that time. Is there an easy way to reset all the downloaded feeds so that
I do not have to wait for the app to do so? Even deleting a feed that has 30
entries takes a couple of minutes. My PC is very fast and I experience this
behaviour on several machines where i have RSS Bandit installed.
Two things may slow down the speed here: deleted items are "moved" to the
"Deleted Items" node, the "Recycle Bin". This is just growing up over time, if
you don't cleanup this node itself.
Second: read stories (feed items) are kept within the .subscription files.
The amount of entries there also grow up over time for each feed depending of
the publishing/read items frequency. So if your .suscription files are quite
big (around and above 2 MB) - especially the "DirectAccess.*.subscription",
you can help yourself by exporting the feed list (e.g. OPML), delete your
feeds and then re-import the exported list. This should "re-build" the
.subscription file and shrink it in size.
The *.subscription files are located at:
It is a good idea to backup the whole folder before you start export/import to
be safe if things get wrong.
