Question / Problem

How much disk space does the database consume?

Answer / Solution

The space used by the database depends on the number of files, the number of folders and the change rate of your files. Generally the database needs approx. 35 MB per 100,000 files. This is just a rule of thumb and is only valid if the database has been compressed recently. When you enable the "MD5 checksums" for your scans, the database size will increase about 1.5 MB per 100,000 files.
