File size going Nuclear - Any clues?

Hi All

 

I have a client using a virtual system and 1 file has increased in size from 196Mb to 4.3Gb in a matter of hours, however the number of records has basically stayed the same.

 

This Setup:

Windows Server 2003

Terminal Server

Over a Virtual Network

FileMaker Server 10

FileMaker Pro 11.3

 

Current Findings:

When I recover the file, there is no size difference. When I Save As compressed there is only a 700mb reduction is side. If I export the fields to excel and reimport them I get a normal file size - not really what I want to do on critical data.

 

The users where getting a disconnect error and the server log showed event ID 30. The FileMaker message from the terminal server is below:

HAS ANYONE SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS?

 

Thanks
