Calcite | Level 5

My coworker put together a SAS Enterprise Guide project and when I open it and immediately save, without making ANY changes, the size of the file jumps from ~10,000 KB to ~17,000 KB. The project log feature is turned off and I can'd figure out any other reason why the file size would increase by 7,000 KB when I make no changes just open and save it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

There are a few things that might be causing this:

-- Are you using the same version of EGuide?  Your saving might convert to a newer storage.

-- Do you and your colleague have the same options set?  I'm not sure which ones might impact storage.

-- Is your computer's storage blocksize different from your colleagues?  I wouldn't expect that big a shift, but it might.

-- Are you using the same version of Windows?  That might also change storage settings.

I have unfortunately the same problem ... Maybe this is the reason (one of your causes) but question is : what can I do to change this file size (previous size) ? Should I rewrite all codes ?
