Seams to be database files; mine are less than a third of yours. Though still very large.

The -wal file is sort of a database log. When WhatPulse is shut down it's safe to remove it. Only leave the whatpulse.db and whatpulse.wpw file. The next release has some improvements to properly delete the file when restarting.

What if we never restart?

It's impossible to never restart Windows, it just simply isn't. ;-)

I restart about once a month, maybe less.

Not a chance that it could during a period of when it hasn't received any keys for X minutes that it automatically cleans its database, is there?
