Hi Chris: You cannot get away with not resizing dynamic files in my experience. The files do not split and merge like we are led to believe. The separator is not used on dynamic files. Your Universe file is badly sized. The math below will get you reasonably file size.
Let's do the math: 258687736 (Record Size) 192283300 (Key Size) ======== 450,971,036 (Data and Key Size) 4096 (Group Size) - 12 (32 Bit Overhead) ==== 4084 Usable Space 450971036/4084 = Minimum Modulo 110424 (Prime is 110431) [ad] I hate doing this math all of the time. I have a reasonably priced resize program called XLr8Resizer for $99.00 to do this for me.
