    Unanswered: Pervasive V10 C:\pvsw\bin\butil -startbu

    Our company uses database Pervasive V10. Its size is 6-7Gb. If we transfer the database into log writing phase by the command C:\pvsw\bin\butil -startbu, which limits are set to data_***.^^^ files according to size or other characteristics? The biggest temporary file was 111MB.

    Delta file (*.^^^) are limited only to how long the file is in Continuous Operations mode (-startbu). The delta files grow based on operations. If a large number of inserts/updates/deletes are performed, the file will grow faster than if only a few are performed.
    Once the -endbu command is issued, the delta files will be rolled into the main files.
