The chart database on my laptop
has reached 6GB and it was slowing down general operations as well as the update control of OpenCPN
I puchased a reasonable 8GB pendrive for around US$ 42.- and transferred all my charts
except CM93 v2 which I retained on my HD.
The added performance was spectacular. For security
reasons I made a backup copy on an 8GB DVD
This method is also handy when I wish to work on my larger screen desktop
PC by just pluging in the pendrive with all my charts
