  • Unusually Large File Size in Print Queue

    Hi folks,

    I'm encountering this weird issue whereby I could be sending a 1MB .doc file for print on the networked printer and the size of this file on the print queue may turn out to be many times bigger than its "size on disk", eg. 5MB?

    Anyone else is encountering this and have any explanation for it?

    Thanks in advance.


    Cheers,
    Galantico

    I would assume it is the conversion from a doc format to the commands that need to be given to the printer (e.g. Postscript or PCL) that does it, and not worry.

        I would print a 800KB photo and it would show 80+MB in the print queue.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.

          A good reason to consider excluding all *.shd and *.spl files from being scanned by your AntiVirus' on-Read/on-Write engines .

            I have a similer issue.
            if i am printing a document X from computer A the file is in the print queue is about 10MB and taking amount of time to actually print the document.

            But, if i am printing the same document from computer B the file size is about 512KB and the printing progrcess goes well.

            What can i do to solve this issue?

              make sure the drivers on the two computers match ?

              (also, split this thread, different issue >?)
