I'm trying to dedup a 14GB table with 11 million records and 203 columns and it times out after about 2 hours;
I'm trying a INSERT INTO new_table SELECT DISTINCT <200 columns> FROM old_table;
I also tried chunking it down to process 500,000 records at a time based on an ID range (that runs about 2 hours and times out).
