Significantly reduce impact of FileWatcher hashing #3724
Type of change
Description and Context
Reduce file watch hashing of open database files from every second to every 30 seconds. Additionally, only hash the first 1024 bytes of the database file. This is valid since most of the header and the entire encrypted portion are changed significantly on every save.
Tested on Windows, see screenshot for impact.
