After doing this, my file size dropped from 41,236kb to 8555kb. What exactly did it do?
I resaved as an InDesign document again and it's now 33768kb, what info is gone?

When you save a file as IDML, InDesign writes out the instructions for building the file using XML. When you open the IDML file, a new clean file should be created. It eliminates a lot of "crud" from the old file that accumulates when a file has been opened and closed many, many times. It would also create new previews of the remaining images in the file, discarding those that are not linked.
Does the file crash now?
So far so good.
Thank you for your help!!!!
