When you delete information from a database, the database file itself does not shrink because the information is not physically removed from the database. It is only flagged internally as deleted. This is because database files can get very large, and re-writing them everytime that a record is deleted would make them too slow.

So, to physically cleanse the database file of deleted records, you use a special function that you find in the menu as Database | Compact & Repair.

Before you use this function, you may want to do two other things first:

1) Remove thumbnails that you no longer need. You can do so by in several ways. For instance, you can select them and press Shift-Del. Or you can right-click on a folder name (in the tree) and use Remove from Tree, to remove all thumbnails pertaining to that folder and its subfolders (be very careful that you do not accidentily use just Del or Delete Folder because that would delete the actual image files from your harddrive!)

2) Remove 'orphaned' thumbnails. A thumbnail record is orphaned when the file that it describes no longer exists. To remove orphans, use Thumbnail | Remove | Orphans from the menu.

When you have done these things, you can use the Compact & Repair function that I mentioned earlier to re-gain a lot of space.

If a ThumbsPlus 10 database has reached its maximum size, we cannot use it again. We cannot search for new words again. Can we reduce the size of it so that we can use it again? It does not search for new word again, because it cannot construct new thumbnails due to the maximum size.
Thank you.

I'm just curious if anyone else has tried contacting them, and whether there was any response.
That's strange about the bug system response. Maybe you should just try again? I haven't talked to them recently either, but I'm also not seeing any complaints from people who have problems getting support or a key. Anyway, if you need HEIC support now, I'm not sure if you should keep waiting, seeing how long we already have been waiting.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Re: Is Cerious really still working?
« Last post by Warner_Young on 2022-05-09 19:04:27 »
Daan, yes, I did back in August of 2021. I got a reply back from bugsystem@thumbsplus.com instead of the sales address. Whoever it was didn't give a name other than "ThumbsPlus Team", and said they expected a public beta in a few months. They then went on to list the features in ThumbsPlus 10. Some of the English in the email seemed a little off, almost as if English wasn't the writer's native language. It certainly didn't sound like any previous emails I've gotten from Cerious.

I'm just curious if anyone else has tried contacting them, and whether there was any response.

Have you written to sales@thumbsplus.com ?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Is Cerious really still working?
« Last post by Warner_Young on 2022-05-07 19:50:35 »
Has anyone been able to contact anybody at Cerious to confirm they're still working? I've finally found that I need something newer than TP 7, since I need to handle HEIC files. But I have no idea if I should still wait for TP 11 or not.

I don't think I've heard of this problem before, but I'd recommend that you try these two small freeware tools that deal with Explorer context menus and shell extensions:

https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html

Hopefully one of those will let you reenable TP's context menu entries!

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Thumbsplus items in context menus
« Last post by AndreJS on 2022-04-19 17:59:08 »
I used to have ThumbsPlus items in Windows Explorer context menus (right-click menus). Now they don't appear anymore, despite the option 'show ThumbsPlus items in Explorer right-click menus' is checked.

I've tried to uncheck-apply, check-apply with no success.

Anyone had faced this before?

Will I have to reinstall TP from scratch for this feature come back to work??  :-\

Any suggestion will be welcome! Thank you!

(Win10Pro-20H2)

I just realized, you're also on the Ritlabs forum, aren't you?

Haha, yes I am!
