I started looking into adding the "Max size of Data to Keep" setting and now I remember why I didn't add this in the first place. The problem is in order to add this you would need to periodically add up the size of all the data or determine the size when the program starts and dynamically track it. Both of these options have a fair amount of overhead. We could minimize the overhead by reducing the frequency of checking the amount but I still have some concerns about it.

Let's skip it for now. Thanks for looking into it. If I hear concerns from others we can reconsider.

In the future if you decide it is really needed we could add this and only check daily to provide some limitation of the size without too much overhead. The default would be not to check at all so the overhead would only be there for users that specifically enable it.
