Database warning settings
All important data in MeasureColor such as References, Presets, Jobs, Measurement conditions, Measurements are stored in a Microsoft SQL database. From version 17.2.xx and later MeasureColor warns you for low HDD space or exceeding the SQL EXPRESS limits (if applicable) on login.
Colorware holds no responsibility for database integrity, security, maintenance, backup and restore procedures. It is advised that a trained system engineer monitors and manages your system at all times.
The disk usage warning only detects the disk space at the server's C-drive
|Throw HDD warning upon login when the drive is reaching its maximum capacity||Enable at all times|
|Throw a warning when HDD has less than this percentage available||5..20 %|
|Throw warning upon login when reaching the limit of SQL EXPRESS||enable when you use the default SQL license*|
|*By default, we install Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express. SQLServer comes in different flavours to meet demands for different types of customers. The Express version has a database limit of 10GB (GigaByte) while commercial licenses of the database server support a nearly unlimited storage capacity of 524PB (PetaBytes).

|Warning when the HDD space is set to 20% and the disk is almost full||Warning when SQL EXPRESS is near its data limit|
- When the Server disk space warning is thrown consider expanding the available disk space or deleting unused files if possible.
- When the database space warning is thrown delete old jobs or (if you use the same job for a prolonged time) delete old measurements. Read more about doing that the easy way here: Database cleanup
