Is it OK to Delete Documents from the EN Attachment Folder?

Recommended Posts

I'm running the Desktop version of EN Premium on a Windows 7 laptop.


I have about 1,400 notes. About 10% of them have an attachment which is typically an Excel or Word document. With Windows Explorer, I was able to find the folder where EN placed these attachments. Some Notes had more than 50 versions of an attachment. I suspected this slows down performance somewhat. As I knew I would never need those old versions, as a test, I deleted them for a specific attachment. It seemed to work fine.


So, my question is, if I am confident that I won't ever want to see past revisions of an attachment to a Note, could I inadvertently cause something bad to happen by manually deleting old versions with Windows Explorer?

The attachments folder is for the temporary storage of files for when you edit an attachment.  The files are actually stored within the main .exb database file.  I haven't tried it but I believe you can delete the contents of the attachments folder without harm (backup first just in case) but I don't think you will see any speed improvements.  It will just free up some disk space.
