I have 2 collegues working on random word documents upstairs.
The files started off as "normal" average sized word documents. However after some formatting and adding of paragraphs the files have become huge.
One document is only 7 pages of text yet it is 29MB.

I believe it is because they have "Tracking Changes" switched on.

Does anyone know if this is the case and if so how can they reduce the size of the files and if not what couold be causing this??

Kind Regards
Ewan

Hi, ewanfraser.

Yes, "Track Changes" will add to the file size. Take a look at this Google Group Thread that discusses this very thing.

LindaGail,

Thanks for that, i also found something somewhere about FastSave also addingt o the size of documents as it saves absolutley everything that has been in the file.

I checked upstairs and the two girls in question had BOTH of these on.

Thanks for your help and the link.

Regards
Ewan
