By how much is it growing now per day or week?

Are you on a PC or are you really on a device where 40MB is a lot of disk?

In my shareware there is a lot more then 15,000 records but it is still
a very small db in my eyes and my users are running around 10 - 20 MB db
sizes, and even double or triple wouldn't worry me for my use case.
