Why is hosted feature layer so much larger than data in fgdb?

Hello all,

I have a line data layer saved as a feature class in a file geodatabase. The unzipped size of the fgdb is 80.3MB. When I upload this data to AGOL, the hosted feature layer for this data is 212MB.

I have disabled editing, sync, and also have not enabled the optimize layer drawing option. When I check the size of the same dataset hosted in our SDE server, the size is 135MB.

Is there anything I can do to reduce the size of this hosted feature layer? Why has it grown so extensively in storage size when I upload to AGOL?

Thanks for your help!

Same problem here! Every time I wipe the data and append it, it doubles in size. It seems it keeps a log of the old stuff and there's no way to remove it, which is consuming more credits (Esri must love it)
