Game size

A few months ago I realised that my game was in the region of 80Mb. What i did to arrive at this i don't know, but of course this may be the true size.
However, over the last couple of days I have changed the title of the adventure, and moved it from Documents to the C drive; program files. This increased my game to 166Mb. I have taken it back to Documents and it has increased to 235Mb. What on earth have I done to deserve this?? :?

Do you have images or sounds in your game?

Are you referring to the size of the game file itself or to the files in the folder? I assume you have the game in its own folder? Could the image/sound files have become duplicated each time you moved the game to a different location?

I have gone back to a 'taf' file i saved a month ago and the size now only reads 36Kb, although the runner plays the game perfectly. I notice that each time i have saved it under a new name, the old one remains in the folder. This may be the problem. I will press on with this particular file and see what happens. Thank you for your help.
