Converting PDF Files, database dramatically dropping in size

Post

Originally when i took on my current project the file that held all of the companies 'pdf' documents was 30gig in size, but they were stored as objects instead of files, ie insert object instead of insert file being used. I have now had all 6000+ plus files opened, saved and re uploaded into the database as pdf files, so 'insert file' was used, once the database server was restarted the file size has dropped from 30 gig to 4.7gig, is this about right? i know its a drastic drop but has anyone else ever experienced something similar?

Thanks in advance!
