Database size post recovery is HUGE


I have a rather perplexing problem in Fielmaker 11.  A recent file server space issue caused two of our databases to crash, and need recovery.  Ever since the recovery, the backup size of these databases have exploded and become quite unwieldy.  For instance, one of our database backups used to come in at around 100 MB.  Now, it's close to a GB in filesize, with very little new information input into the database - the recovery is the only thing that has changed, and it has caused the filesize to expand greatly.

I have tried compacting the databases, and saving as compacted copies - this does not help. 

Suggestions welcome, and appreciated!  Thank you!
