    Compacting not effective



      Compacting not effective


           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
