Delete custom icons completely (database file size remains unchanged)

Recommended Posts


when I upload a custom icon in Enpass, the vault/database file size increases on my local computer and on my cloud storage, of course. But when I delete an icon, it disappears, but the file size of the Enpass database doesn't decrease. Is the icon really deleted?

This is the reason why I don't use custom icons yet, because I'd always increase the file size of the Enpass database file every single time I test whether an icon I upload looks good in the item list or not and I don't want that. Is there a way to completely delete an icon and restore the original file size of the database as it was before uploading the icon? Is this maybe a bug?


Thanks in advance!

Please implement the "vacuum" command.

I've added a lot of custom icons and then, when I've seen a slowdown in synchronization, I started removing them, but the DB size didn't change...

I've tried opening it with this tool ( https://sqlitebrowser.org/ ) to shrink/compact it, but it is password protected...

So, in a long-term vision, this is a must-have feature: the DB cannot grow forever! KeepassXC performs it automatically when saving, while 1Password can compact the DB on-demand from the "Help" menu.

Anything about this?

Database is still growing even when I remove stuff. 

What will happen when I do a factory reset and import the data that I just exported? Will the database shrink?

Hi All,

Just out of interest when you say your databases are growing, just how large have they got?

I'm now at 858kB 

But even when I remove stuff it won't shrink It will just make it bigger. For me it's not a big problem yet but it will be.
