    Try and delete and unnecessary media files, like movies/tv, etc, as they take a lot of space. I use windirstat to find the files taking the most space on my machine.


    I would suggest you turn off logging on your new SQL installation as well as these other performance improvements in my signature - Top 10: HEM performance increase tips

    To turn off logging, follow these instructions. This is the first thing I do anytime I install SQL for someone.

    - Start > My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > View > UnCheck 'Hide Extensions for known file types' > OK

    - C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\data\postgresql.conf > Right-Click > Open With.. > NotePad > Check 'Always use this program'

    - Scroll about half way down to ~Lines 245 - 260:

    - The last line of this block of code, for the 'logging_collector', must be changed from On to Off.

    HTML Code:
    # - Where to Log -
    log_destination = 'stderr'        # Valid values are combinations of
                        # stderr, csvlog, syslog and eventlog,
                        # depending on platform.  csvlog
                        # requires logging_collector to be on.
    # This is used when logging to stderr:
    logging_collector = off        # Enable capturing of stderr and csvlog

    File > Save; File > Close

    Start > Programs > PostgreSQL 8.3 > Reload Configuration.

    - Start > My Computer > C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\data\pg_log, or C:\Program Files (x86)\PostgreSQL\data\pg_log, if you have 64 bit Vista. Delete all files in that folder. And it might be a good idea to empty your recycle bin at that point, or use a 3rd party utility like CCleaner to clean up all your junk/temporary files. You want to do this before you get to the vacuum and defrag process.

    Regarding database maintenance:

    You should regularly purge mined hands in your database, after purge vacuum / full analyze the database via pgadmin. You do not want to purge any Hero hands so make sure your alias is properly configured before purging.
    FAQ - Hold'em Manager Poker Tracking Software :: Purge Hands from Database
    FAQ - Hold'em Manager Poker Tracking Software :: Purge Hands

    Then you can vacuum/analyze - FAQ - Hold'em Manager Poker Tracking Software :: Vacuum Analyze Database

    Before you defragment you should stop the PostgreSQL service:

    Start > Programs > PostgreSQL 8.x > Stop Server

    Use your favorite defrag tool. I recommend Smart Defrag.

    After defrag I recommend you reboot your PC. If you need to access the DB before rebooting you can start the PostgreSQL service.

    Start > Programs > PostgreSQL 8.x > Start Server
