file size issue with office applications...

Hello,
We developed a network FSD for windows NT/2K/XP. We came across a
strange problem of file size issue with MS Office applications. File
size increases for each save without adding any contents to the file.
Did anyone came across this kind of problem?
I hope some one will help me with this issue.

Waiting for expert’s suggestions…

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Shwetha

This is because the DOC file has internal structure of several streams, and
can have fragmentation and holes.
“Save” operation is incremental, and thus increases the fragmentation.
Use “Save As” to another name - this is not incremental, and produces the
defragmented document.

If you ask another time, I’ll assume your mail server needs
replacing, as I’m sure we all saw it 4 times now:-)
Other than the suggested, I think you should check your write path,
and make sure it takes the right byte offset the data is written at, as
well as the length…
Also, IRP_MJ_SET_INFORMATION with FileAllocationInformation and
FileEndOfFileInformation - while that would do the opposite of growing
the file, one never knows what he thought when he wrote the code (that’s
why I’m thinking of adding comments soon:-).
