Size of Filemaker database after migration from Bento
I have just migrated my Bento database to Filemaker and am a bit confused regarding the increase of the size of the database. The original Bento database was 13.7GB, but the new Filemaker database is 46.5GB in size. Is there any explanation for this increase? Does it have to do with the separation of libraries/collections in Filemaker as opposed to Bento? Any insights are very much appreciated.
Filemaker databases larger size has been questioned frequently. Similar to mailbox sizes in some email clients. Images are typically the main source of the size increase.
