Hello, I'm having trouble to contact ZWCAD Representatives in Argentina, so I contact you.
I have in 4 different computers (3 of them with pendrive) installed the ZWCAD (all with licence and some of them came with a pendrive). I open a file in one of them and it weights 18.000KB while in the rest of the computers the exact same file weights 3.100KB file. Do you know why this happens? I'm desperate! I can not work with this files because my computer crashes a lot!
Really sorry if there is a topic with this problem, but as English it's not my native language it's really difficult to understand and search!
Thank you very much for any tip you can suggest!!!

hi Maria, sorry I didn't understand, 3.100 KB is not a big file. ZWCAD+ can even work with dwg file as big as 300 MB.

Hello Jenny! Thank you for your response.
3100KB it's not a heavy file, the problem is that that file magically goes from 3100kb to 18000kb by just opening it in one of our computers without drawing anything , while in the others it stays in 3100kb.
I was wondering if there is a solution for that.

Thank you very much!

So at opening.
I guess that you look in the task manager or is there a difference between save sizing?

If zwcad has such differences, sire that zwcad opens just this drawing?
I have several drawings open under zwcad 2012+ professional at this momen.
The zwcad proces uses 440MB (450520 KB)
Which windows versions are used on these computers?

Hello stefaa5779,
We have Windows 7 Professional in all computers (computers in which this file is 3100KB and in the one that makes the file weight 18000KB). The numbers I gave were the file's weight. The process that I did was:
1- Open the file.
2- Save it.
3- Close it.
and magically it goes from 3100 to 18000. I didn't open the task manager since i didn't considered it was necessary....but in this case, ZWCAD uses 229000 KB when I open this file (and this file only).
Thankx!
Maria
