I have had "Enable detailed free download tracking" checked since I installed the Pro version.  I just realized there are over 2000 items recorded.  Is there an option to clear these logs somewhere?  Will there be any issue with recording this many entries in the DB?

Thanks

    Hi mate, 2000 entries shouldn't be an issue, but you can use a bulk delete plugin to clear old logs if you want.

    The custom post type used for download logs is 'somdn_tracked'.

    Worthwhile noting that deleting logs will affect a user's download history on their account page, and any download limits. For example if you have download limits set per month, deleting any logs from this month will reset those limits.
