      Remote Storage is storing remotely and inside the fmp12 file

      Your post

      I have a file that is set to store container data remotely. I noticed today that the RC_Data_FMS folder is 118 MB and the fmp12 file was 127 MB.

      This fmp12 is used to store files only and does not have any other data in it. The fmp12 file should only be a couple of MB's.

      What is going on here?

          Thank you for your post.

          FileMaker Pro 12 can store files as embedded or by reference only.

          If the goal is to store only a reference to the file being inserted into the container field, the user should be checking the box “Store only a reference to the file” before clicking “Insert.”

          If that was the process followed, you might try making a compacted copy of the file to see how much the file size is reduced.

          If the following does not resolve the issue, please let me know and we can discuss next steps.
