Display Update Pending bottleneck

Postby kdbrink » Sun Mar 19, 2017 1:16 am

When I see the "display update pending" message, where is the bottleneck? Newsbin is installed on a SSD, and I am running Windows 7 64 bit with 32gb of RAM.

Do I need to upgrade my video card?

What version are we talking about? Newer versions have had changes in this area.

What it means is that part of the information needed to be displayed is currently on disk and awaiting loading from disk to display.

Newsbin is installed on a SSD,


In the options select "Open Data Folder". Does it open the SSD drive? The install folder and where the data files all reside is completely disconnected.

I'm wondering if you have a massive download list DB or maybe a huge signature or "downloadMarker.db3" file?

If you have nothing in the download list, you might do "open data folder" again, exit Newsbin and delete "DownloadsV2.db3". This will wipe the download, failed and wish lists.

Everything points to the SSD.
The downloadMarker.db3 file is 89.3MB
The downloadsV2.db3 is 67.7MB
Both files were created in 2015!

Is it safe to delete both?

You can if you want. They're not that big.

DownloadMarker is what puts the hash marks on already downloaded files in the display
DownloadsV2 is the file that holds the download, wish and failed lists.
