Title

Compacting not effective

Post

     Has anyone been able to properly compact a database?  Here's what I encountered:

     DB with embedded photos                                                                     2,601 MB

     Stripped the photos to external and deleted embedded photos     2,601 MB, so no change

     Saved as a copy after stripping photos and compacted                   1,952 MB, so not much change

     Made DB copy, deleted all records and imported from original           0.6 MB, so big change to where compacting should be
