Revit Central file size

With Worksharing in Revit, the Central file, over time can become large. Larger than just adding information to you model. The question is how do we reduce the size of the Central file so it is manageable and does not slow down our work. Here is what you can do..

Open the Central file with the “detach from Central” box checked and then save as a new Central file with a different file name, or to a different location on their server. What this does is it rewrites the database associated with the file and can dramatically reduce the file size. Also you can select the Audit checkbox to cleanup the file as well. See images on the right for reference.
