external storage containers generates automatically jpg and png files.
Filemaker pro 13 ADV 13.0.4
I'm storing PDF files in a container, which is in open storage mode, on a separate NAS.
Each new entry automatically generates a PNG and a JPG file, in addition to the PDF.
I suppose that those are created to ensure compatibility with web direct and/or filemaker go.
The problem is they are, more often than not, larger than the PDF. Its means at the moment a 148% increase in used disk space. I suppose speed suffers as well.
Any ideas how to turn that off ? I do not plan on this database to use either WD or FG.
The option in Manage>containers>Thumbnails seemed to fit the bill, but turning it off has not effect.
Thanks a lot !
My test do not create any other files. As far as I know Go and WD uses a PDF reader to open PDF files just as a computer does. I create a test container, storage option is open. The only files in the folder is the PDF files. FMPA 13.0.4 on Windows 7.
