      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.
