The database is the file in Miranda that stores all your settings, contact list, and history.

It is much like the Windows registry, although it is contained in a single, easily portable, and easy to back up, file.

Database MaintainanceEdit

Your database may grow over time, as information is added, and deleted, deleted information is not always thoroughly removed.

You can refresh, and compact your database by using DBTool, a tool in the Miranda program directory that performs certain tasks on database files.

You should always back up your database before running DBTool!

Make sure Miranda is not running, or your database file will not display in DBTool.
