    Db too big and slow


    Recently I experimented with imported pictures in a form but I didn't like it so I deleted them. Now I see that the dabase file is over 20 MB and it should be about 5 MB. Could that have to du with the pictures (that are removed...)?

    I tried to compact and repair database and now it is 11 MB. Still a little too much and it takes about 15 seconds to save.

    How do I fix this?

    Try *importing* your db into a fresh new db and see if the problem follows.
