We use RoboHelp to create HTML help for our clients. After we
compile a help subsystem, we crush the compiled help into a single
Each time we crush one of our help subsystems, the size of
the final crush file changes slightly. For example, if I crush
EDhelp on Monday, the EDhelp.CSH file might show as being 6,050 KB.
If I recompile and recrush on Wednesday, the final crush file might
show as 6,100 KB. It makes sense to me that the crush file will
enlarge as we add more topics to the EDhelp subsystem.
Here's the catch: A client is reporting that our crush files
sometimes DECREASE by about 200 KB between deliveries, even though
we are not removing help topics. When I compare the number of
folders and documents in the help project to an older version, I
see nothing missing. The help appears to work fine, but the client
worries that something is missing.
Does anyone have any idea why the size of a crush file would
be reduced by about 220 KB from a previous crushing of the file,
when the files being crushed have not been reduced?

BTW please do not cross post a question in two of more
forums. Most of the people who can answer your questions monitor
all of them so will them. It also causes some confusion for others
as they find an unanswered entry that was answered somewhere else.
Oh and it is against the forum rules
