Im not sure if this is an isolated issue, but now that FMS 17 is adding new security features we have gone ahead and encrypted our databases, about 3-4 weeks ago as part of our maintenance we copied our database with the compacted option and our database was around 65mb when we Encrypted the file the Database grew to over 100mb, I was thinking that this was a big bummer, but after the encryption we then did the save as compacted copy again and the file went down to 78mb, that is a trade off we are willing to take in order to gain a bit more security on our data.


Hope this helps someone making the transition to Encrypting files.
