Compacting not effective
Operating system version
Windows 7 64
Description of the issue
Saving a copy with the compact option does not reduce the file size to where it should be. I have a database with embedded photos taken with FM Go on an iPad and brought back into FM Pro Advanced.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Here's what I encountered:
Start - DB with embedded photos 2,601 MB
Step 1 - Stripped the photos to external and deleted embedded photos 2,601 MB, so no change
Step 2 - Saved as a copy after stripping photos and compacted 1,952 MB, so not much change
Step 3 - Made DB copy, deleted all records and imported from original 0.6 MB, so big change to where compacting should be
Small file size since it's all now text.
DB still large. See above
