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
This looks like a possible bug to report in Report an Issue where it will be seen by TS personnel that work for FileMaker Inc.
