In a.b.teevee, I have an 8.1GB Storage.db3 file, which equates to around 13.7 million from this donkey.
I'm on 6.73rc2 (4820) now but didn't notice this idiot until it was too late.
If I kill nbpro and reload 7 days of headers, it comes up with the 13.7 mill. I can scroll down and delete around 1000 posts at a time (takes a few mins each) but if I scroll to much greater number, (say half or quarter of the scroll bar), then nbpro hangs then seems to do no more.
I lastly tried the mechanism someone else described, "delete all posts from this poster", that was done at 12:55 yesterday, around 28hrs ago and there has been no change to the database access time or size since then.
Aside from deleting the database totally and clean downloading (I'm already about 2 weeks behind); which would take forever and three quarters for me (at around 2.5 mill post each day) as I only have 6mbits; is there anything else anyone can suggest please, I'm kind of stuck now and getting further behind each day.
Many thanks and best wishes to all, Martin.
