I was told by our IT department that in order to ugrade from any version in revit from old to new, you must compact the central file first in the original version before the upgrade. Compacting acts as a defragmenter. Sounds odd but if it must be done.

Is this true?

I've never heard of anything like this. Does "compact" mean compressing the file into a zip-folder? because that wouldn't make any sense. Maybe they mean "purge" rather than "compact". That might have some merit.

There is so much information in Revit's HELP if people would only look.  Searched "upgrade Revit" and you will find:

"Upgrading Workshared Projects"  This tells you what you should do and there is nothing about compacting the file in the old version.....

i think that i would advise before upgrading is to correct as many of the outstanding "warnings" as possible.

I realize this thread is a little dated but the recommendation is the run an Audit while opening and upgrading the central file in the new version of REVIT. Audit and Compact are two seperate operpations.
