      Hey guys... I wonder how long does it take for your elephant to load?

      I have like 100K hands in my database. My oc is dell inspiron 1525 laptop with 2ghz procesor and 2gb RAM which i guess is kinda ok...

      And it takes 30 minutes for my elephant to load.... which is pretty sick.

      So how long is your elephant loading? and does anyone know any tricks to speed it up?

      30k hands only takes me about 2-3 minutes to load

      try to compact your DB theres an option somewhere I am not sure how much better it will be. (i think its called vaccume or something i think not sure)

      30 mins? Wow, I thought the 1 or 2 minutes it was taking for mine to load was bad.

      do you really need all those hands in the database if they are from an old limit or something you could get rid of them and see if it makes it load any faster..they should be archived somewhere anyways

      5-10 mins now.

      which brings us to the question: How do I make a backup of old Elephant hands/data so that I can delete them and speed up my pc?

      40k hands, about 2-3 minutes.

      I think that it's also because u have a laptop. Probably the harddisk has slower access time or smth.
      I have dualcore with 3 Gigs of RAM and I thought it takes a lot.

      And it can also slow down, I guess, if you have hand histories from more than one site.

      But like Pid said, older hands you should delete, if you have so many hands you probably play now at a totally different limit, so the old ones are useless by now.
