1201: MM.db-journal floods recycle bin

Post by Timo_Beil »

Your are generating a MM-db-journal, that is deleted after use.
My DB resides on a NAS with recycle bin.
I delete all the entries with a time triggered script, but...
Isnt't it better to reuse this file instead of generating and deleting it all the time?

It's not really part of MM code, it's the database it uses which generates it/them.
It also must be NAS specific as these do not end up in my recycle bin

Some NAS auto add delete files to the Recycle Bin so that the user can recover them. I assume that locally the file is removed permanently.

The issue here seems that the NAS has a non-standard implementation of the Recycle Bin.

Yep.
The problem would never show up for 99.99%+ of users.

SQLite (the embedded database in MM3) is not designed for network use. This is just one of the artifacts of that fact.

MM3 would have to make a major change to use something like embedded MySQL (as Amarok2 did) to properly support a networked install.

For now, I think you will have to continue to live with the, I assume, cron scripts.

Ok. If it's based on the db engine, I have to continue with my del. script.
Thanks for the infos, Timo

what kind of nas is it? I have a readynas NV+ and I am pretty sure that there is an option for the recycle bin to automatically clear itself after a some time period (days?).

It's a Thecus N4100pro, a Soho type. I only have the option "Samba recycle bin enable/disable".
For the present, scheduled tasks on the XP Clients are deleting (only) the journal files.
But I will refresh my dusty Linux knowledge, so I can install a cronjob on the NAS.

Edit 2008-12-09, 8:40 GMT:
OK Owyn, I'll let it be. There exists a shell module for the NAS, but Linux isn't my daily profession so I'll make no experiments.

For those, who have a similar Problem: there are some hidden files

Code: Select all

del m:\.recycle\*.tmp /S /Q
del m:\.recycle\*.db-journal /S /Q
del m:\.recycle\*.db-stmtjrnl /A:H /S /Q
del m:\.recycle\*.MMSaTe /S /Q

Did a quick search. Found.

While it may be possible to hack the NAS, I probably would not. The XP script does the job, leave it as is. Much less risk and little to gain unless you really want to hack the beast.
