    Unanswered: What are contributing factors in sizing?

    Hi,

    The front of my database is around 80MB, what are the main contributing factors that increase the size?

    I have a alot of tabs and picture backgrounds. Will this be a big factor?


    Thanks

    if the front end is that big then I suspect the images may make a difference
    however the largest single difference is going to be taken up with redundant and deleted objects
    take a backup, then do a compact and repair
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Besides compact and repair, the picture content will impact the size a lot.
