My rssowl database is over 1.2 GB... even though I just cleaned up 50% of my
How can I defrag or compact this database?
Can anyone help with this (please)?.
Tools > Clean Up. But the size issue will remain in 2.0.x and eventually to be
looked at in 2.1.
Thanks -- but as you said, that option doesn't shrink the database.
Any idea when 2.1 will be released? At this point, my hard drive is filled,
pretty much and so my only options are to not use RSSOwl or delete all my
Do you know of an external tool or utility that can shrink this database (what

I just really love rssowl, but it's at almost 2gb, and keeps growing and I
dont know of a way to keep this on my machine too much longer...

"db4o Defragment will do what you want. You should run it with the RSSOwl
sources in the CLASSPATH. You may like to ask the RSSOwl guys to include
Defragment in their product. It's really easy for them. It's just 3 lines that
they have to add to their code and one more menu item for their app"
I am not a programmer but is there any chance of getting this into the next
600 MB for an empty database, c'mon...
