bloating during FileCopy

P: n/a

I'm trying to copy an mde to a different directory. Using Filecopy,
it goes from 4.5 megs to over 180 megs. Same thing when I use
Scripting.FileSystemObject's CopyFile. This is a front-end mde with
practically no records stored locally!

I also tried with a fresh mdb by importing everything I needed
(structure only for local tables, no menus etc), decompiled, then
compacted a couple of times. Then created the mde again (yes I know
that compacts also, but I'm running out of ideas). No change. I
can't distribute a 181 meg front end to clients over a network! Any
