When using Compact_management in Python it actually makes the geodatabase larger. Has anyone else noticed this, or any ideas as to why this might be happening?
I'm using it on a file geodatabase. When I right-click on it in ArcCatalog and use the Administration>Compact Database command it compacts down to about 6.6 MB. When I run the Python script it inflates it to about 9 MB.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
