    I write because I need someone to help explain what has happened to my TMG project sqz files. After a long day of working in TMG I usually run BACKUP after I have run MAINTENANCE, both REINDEX , OPTIMIZER and VALIDATE FILE INTEGRITY. This afternoon I notice that the SQZ files which was generated by BACKUP was considerably smaller than my previous SQZ files. Size went from 39,095 KB to 6,803 KB. To the best of my knowledge I ran the same BACKUP I usually do so the files size to my way of thinking should not be smaller than the last file I ran. None of my SQZ files have my EXHIBITS included, the EXHIBITS are all in separate file. My project seems to be working normally and the PROJECT SUMMARY reports the correct number of PEOPLE, TAGS, SOURCES, etc. Can anyone give me any explanation of why the SQZ files might be so much smaller than my previous SQZ files? Is this something to alarmed about? I have removed all sync operations with Dropbox as that might have been interfering with BACKUP. I went back and reran BACK UP Just to be sure I had not changed something. SQZ is still the same smaller file. By way of reference I am running Windows 10, and last version of TMG is Version 9.05.
