Removing files not decreasing cty file size
I added a large file to my CTY file, e.g. a 50MB AVI, and then removed it, but the CTY file has not returned to a normal size (it's now over 66MB). I used Access to compact the db to no effect. Please advise via email. Thanks.
I can never understand why people post things to Web forums or newsgroups and then ask for replies by e-mail!
Did you use "File-Compact Site?"
The reason to post to a news group or discussion group and ask for a reply via email is that I don't hang out on this list, but it's the only option for technical support, so I'm forced to use it. Asking for a reply via email allows me to receive a fix for my issue without having to poll this list, shifting through all the issues, looking for mine so I can see if there are any responses.
File->Compact Site (which I didn't know about until your very help response) did the trick. Thanks!
