Busy times! New updates for all our products are currently being tested in the beta/rc stage. Music Label and Password Memory are soon to receive minor product updates including both minor enhancements and a number of fixes. Movie Label and Book Label are soon due for major updates (that we are extremely excited about).
I’m keeping it short this month but hope I leave you with the feeling of some nice product updates coming your way. And as usual, make sure you send us your suggestions, questions, bug reports and testimonials. We appreciate all feedback and we always try to respond within a few hours.
When you have used our products for a while and a number of database upgrades have been performed due to new versions, the database file will have allocated extra disk space (in order to perform the changes.)
Optimizing your database once in a while, especially if you have a large database, is a good idea. Optimizing (or reconstructing) the database is a very easy task and doing it every other year is more than enough.
All you need to do is to perform a backup and then, right after, restore the same backup. The database will then be reconstructed from the ground up using the backup. This will optimize the disk space used by the database.
As mentioned, this is by no means necessary and you will probably not notice any speed gains. But at least, now you know how to do it.
