Thanks for that pointer.

It seems that when somebody opens a PCB file on any computer on the
network, and has a library file added that is in the library database, the
.ldb file appears showing admin access for that computer.

Under these circumstances, if I open, edit, and close the library database,
the compact does not work, and the database bloates.

All I need to do, is to remember to compact the database after changes, at
a time when nobody else is logged on, so that the compact utility will
work.

Annoying, but at least I know what is happening, and what to do to fix it.

Thanks,

Mike.

This can happen when (occasionly for whatever reason) the temporary
database.ldb-file is not deleted. Then you are logged in to the database
two
times with the same user name on the same machine. This prevents Protel
from
compacting when you are closing the ddb because your "Phantom" still has
opened
it. With earlier service packs I could see this effect several times and
had to
help myself sometimes by manually delete the database.ldb-file in the
Windows
Explorer.

Knock on wood, since service pack 4 or 5 I can't remember to have seen this
again!
