I wanted to know how much space was using the database am working on, but
found some big files I don't know what they do... these files are located in
and are named 'myhostname-bin.000nn' (nn is 1 to 29 at this moment)... I don't
know that are those files, so I did a 'less' on them and it appears to be
binary data with mixed full insert commands for part of my existing database.
My question is... why are those files there? are they really needed or can be
removed? they are really big and contain old insert commands that will not be
used never more... can I simple delete all of them?
Thanks for any information!!!
