File Size?

What makes a file so big?  I have what I thought was a relatively small database with 3 tables.

Table 1 has 18 fields and 950 records.

Table 2 has 32 fields and 345 records.

Table 3 has 31 fields and 362 records.


But the file size is 292 MB.


Yes, there are 3 container fields with photos in them.  Should these photos be removed and compressed and then replaced?  These are on a client's iPhone.  The client takes the photo with his phone and then (I assume) puts it in the record.


Is there a better way?  Do you think this hefty size is caused by these three container fields with photos?


What is the best way to deal with this?    I think he is running FM15.


Thanks for the help!
