Howard, I agree. I just checked one of my sql dump files.  After 1 1/2 years of running Moodle 2.0., my database is only 123MB.  Not bad, especially since I have Moodle setup to save all logs.

Typically, were are the database files in a Linux system?

/var/lib/mysql seems popular.

You will find a separate directory for each database under there.

Great!  I knew that these database files had to be somewhere.  I won't forget this.
