Summary

Filesize much larger than expected - resulting from container use

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.04

Operating system version

win8

Description of the issue

-I create a filemaker file, the filesize of the .fmp12 is say… 5mb;
- create say… 100 records, each with a container storing a pdf/image, etc.
Naturally, the filesize of the .fmp12 grows to allow for these pdfs. Its now say, 30mb.

I delete all 100 records. But the filesize remains at 30ish mb!


Have tried flushing, file recovery, deleting the container field from manage DB,  etc etc, nothing seems to revert the .fmp12 filesize back to 5ish mb.
