We are getting the following error when trying to start a
SQL Anywhere 10.0.1.3515 database: "Note: The size of
'c:\database\database.db' is larger than expected". What
does this mean and what would cause this error? The
database is about 64GB in size.

Thanks,
Billy

Hi Billy,

Did the database go down dirty? Is this database undergoing recovery
when displaying this message?

From another developer:

======
The "file is larger than expected" message really just indicates that
the server went down dirty while the file was growing (it doesn't really
relate specifically to the checkpoint log). Again, it's just an
informational message and not an error. The server will truncate the
file to the correct size after recovery completes successfully.
======

Regards,
