Benefits to ext storage if file/table solely for docs?

Hi all

 

What benefits are there, if any, to using external storage for container documents if the fmp12 file has only one table — just for those documents — and almost no other fields but the container field (id, creation/mod, doc metadata)?

 

Since the total backup size doesn't seem much different between internal- & external storage, and there's the additional hassle of having to copy/paste the files when dealing with backups, I'm thinking that keeping these docs internal would make things easier all around.  Am I wrong?

 

Thanks,

-Joel
