A Fritz question... Can anyone tell me how to delete a database from Fritz? I've got Fritz 8 and for the life of me can't figure out how to get rid of some of the old databases I've created and then decided I didn't want to use. Thanks in advance! ws

Should be easy, but ... Open the database and then choose Tools, Database, Delete Files. After confirmation, apparently it will delete your file from the disk, as well as the Fritz view. I just did this and it gave me a runtime error! It was a pgn file, not a database, however, so maybe that was the reason.

Otherwise, simply delete the file from your hard drive (or rename it), and then try to open it in Fritz using the drop down box. It will give an error and remove it from view.

Thanks, John The "Delete Files" method worked for me. I appreciate the response. ws

I too get a runtime error trying the "Delete Files" option to remove a database! But as John says, it's easy to work around by physically purging it from the harddrive. I love Fritz, but it is a bit flaky at times...
