Lesson 13. Navigating the Web > Performing Housekeeping

Performing Housekeeping

Storing all the Web pages you visit could result in a very large database file. At some time, you'll have to remove some of those files. One way to do this is to use the Housekeeping agents to automatically delete stored Web pages. When enabled, this agent runs daily. To enable Housekeeping, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Personal Web Navigator

  2. Choose Actions, Internet Options.

  3. Click the Size Options tab (see Figure 13.8), and select one of these options:

    • Reduce Full Pages to Links If Not Read Within— Select this option to have Notes delete the contents of the Web page but save the URL so you can still open the page on the Web. Then specify the number of days that the Web page should be in the database before deletion.

    • Remove Pages from Database If Not Read In— Choose this option to have Notes delete the entire Web page. Then specify the number of days that the Web page should be in the database before deletion.

    • Disable— Select this option to disable the agent that auto matically deletes stored Web pages.

      Figure 13.8. Set your housekeeping options to reduce the size of Web pages that haven't been read recently or to delete those pages.

  4. (Optional) If you want to be warned when the database gets to a certain size, select Warn Me When the Database Exceeds and then specify a size in megabytes.

  5. Click Enable Housekeeping. The Choose Server to Run On dialog box appears. Select Local and click OK.
