Daedalus Wallet - insane number of files?! (700k and counting)

I installed Daedalus Wallet but got stuck at the Syncing Blocks part. I followed the instructions on the FAQ under this part:

“I am stuck at the loading screen, it says “Syncing blocks” at X.X%. What should I do?”

Where it says to delete the contents of the “DB-1.0” folder. I started this deletion an hour ago and Windows is still counting the files in here to delete. It is currently at over 700,000 files and still going!!? What on earth is a new application doing creating this insane number of files on a local machine??


Update - this capped out at around 865k files. I guess the blocks are pretty intense. It took a day to re-sync everything but wallet is back up and functional now.
