For info - with the ongoing and varied issues with Due Today - the quickest way to reset is to delete the database in the 'Application Data' folder, start the app and reset the sync settings and then sync with Toodledo (I would not use the in house sync as that causes major problems currently).
I also note all of these errors are on the app side and the ToodleDo data is normally absolutely fine and uncorrupted.
The DueToday DB has some faults clearly, as it's size can just grow disproportionately with the tasks stored. Clearly this is as a result of failed syncs. Last week mine was over 1mb (sounds small, but that's a lot fo tasks) but once deleted and recreated it was down to 79k.
Annoying, but can avoid lots of deleting duplicates and amending repeating entries.

Actually, it's not a result of failed syncs. I designed the file to work like an actual database. So, as the size of a task grows, it may be appended to the end of the file rather than rewriting its original location. This leaves a dead area for other items to occupy.

I have a routine that's supposed to go in and shrink the file. Apparently I need to make it more aggressive as it's not working the way it should. I'll get that fixed in 1.7.

That's good - although for info, it grew from 100k to 1mb in the space of a few hours and a few reinstalls when I was having problems and getting a lot of duplicates etc.

I've seen that before, too. I think what I'll do is shrink the file when the program first starts up. It might delay the startup a little when you've got a really big file. But after that, it should be pretty fast.
