Library Status:Full

What is the worst thing that could happen if a library is too full?
I created many libraries and divided it in cateogries; like water,light,electric, wind and so on...(It took a long while). But many of them are pretty full and I want to know if that could actually affect the library in any way.

Also, they are some libraries of mine that are pretty big in size because of the complexity of the emitters and not because of the quantity.

My largest library is 33.372 kb

The biggest problem with a large library is that it'll slow down your workflow. Since the currently loaded library is stored in the RAM when you're working, a big one can eat up quite a bit of your memory. I have some 200 mb libraries (for no reason other than I'm too lazy to delete some huge shape sequences in them), and performance definately takes a hit when I load them up.

Another downside could be that if you have all your favourites in one giant library and it gets deleted/corrupted somehow, you'll end up losing everything. But the library backups takes care of that problem.
