Several times it happened to me so far that when Revit crashes it politely asks me to save a recovery file. So far so good!

However, the new recovery file is 10mb less. Original file was 40MB.

 

Any idea why that happens? Where are those 10MB lost?

Nothing was lost except wasted space.

Was looking for a more reasonable explanation.

 

Just wanted to know what I am doing wrong. And how come nothing is missing from the recovery file, yet its size is smaller?

I thought that was a pretty clear explanation.  A recovery file is like a compacte file - it is smaller than the original...wow!

OK, I am just trying to learn something here. So as far as I get it, it's like the file gets defragmented, or..? If that's the case, then can't we do that manually, without having to wait for a crash to occur? Cos just in my case a 40mb file went to 30mb, so that's quite a leap. For larger files would be even more beneficial, I suppose.

I suggest you get a good beginners book and become familiar with the tools that are available to you.  And one of the better tools is your REVIT HELP.  The loaded help is much more concise than the on-line Wiki Help.  Become familiar with the basic outline topics.  File compaction, recovery, auditing are all covered there.
