Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Any body here has any idea about what is it in a power project programme that takes most of the disk space. I have been working on a programme that was eariler of a size 4 mb but has jumped to 14 mb in the next revision although i have just added 200 more tasks making them from 2100 to 2300. Now, i have tried to delete every thing that i could imagine being the reason behind the massive increase in size. Have tried deleting resources, calendars, saved views, etc nothing seems to work. Have called up Asta support several times but no body there knows the apparent reason.Anyone here could help me out?

have you worked heavily in the Code Library in between?
It could explain the size growth, as everything is stored in the project file.
