Next question. Database size. I am a fairly competent SQL programmer and I can't get my head around this either. If I do a help : about on the remote db's and then database information, and I look at the table sizes why is the sync table so big? My contact table is 7mb, my History is 99 MB and my sync is 404 mb; what gives? Repairing the sync objects does not change this. BTW reindex only increases the db size and makes my transaction log grow dramitically in size.
