But there has to be some better solution. Every couple of days, I have to open the dashboard, click on settings, click on charts->general. Enable 'consolidate data on next startup'. Then exit the application and then restart it. I was doing it once a week or in 10 days but with crypto, I have to do it every 2-3 days. On the surafce, it doesn't look like a big deal but it's just irritating when you have to do it frequently.

that "consolidate" is basically if your data file grew a lot and now has a lot of empty space (like if you cleared data, or large amount of data expired), it creates a new data file and only copies active data to it, thus shrinking the file. Other than this, the data file never shrinks.

What I've been doing is doing a manual clear of crypto symbols, you can do the whole port in one shot

I assume that gets rid of all the tick data, if not from the database then at least from the data MT has to slog through

actually, I updated the OHLC consolidation - before it was only on startup and only if not done in a while. Changed it to be every 4 hours, but only if idle - idle being no action with menus or MT windows like clicking on them. will be in next beta.

Perfect.

No action for how long to be 'idle'?
