Files increasing in size

Post

     We use FileMaker Server 11 for multiple files from multiple off-site locations, which use VPN software to access the files. I manage the server. I import the files into a main database. Occasionally I change the structure of the database and/or add layouts. I create a template database and one by one import each database into the template then save a copy as each separate database. After each “import” and “save a copy as”, I delete the records and then import the next file. As I was working on this today I noticed that after each “import”, “save a copy as”, and “delete all records” the template size increased in size even though there were no records in it. Does anyone know what is happening or how to prevent the increase in size.
