Size of file doubled after save ?


Recommended Posts


Whenever I do a modification of a song, even a small one that reduce the lengh of the song (eg I trim silence at the beginning and end, hence the overall song is say 10s shorter, no other modification), the file size doubles, for example from 3mb to 5mb. At the bottom of the soft, after a file is saved, there is a green mention about higher conversion rate. I don't think I had that originally. 

So my question : did I touch something or is this normal and com pulsary ? Is there a s etting I could modify (I looked but couldn't find anything) as I don't need extra sound quality whatsoever, I'm happy with the original quality of the song, I mam more into saving space on the hard drive.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Try doing a clean install and delete all the cache of the program. Uninstall your software first, then go to the folder location below on your computer then delete the WavePad  folder folders:

C:\ProgramData\NCH Software
C:\Users\(Your computer profile)\AppData\Roaming\NCH Software\WavePad

If you can't find the AppData folder, set Windows to show hidden files and folders with the steps from this link: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/14201/windows-show-hidden-files.

After deleting the WavePad  folder, restart your computer then install it again from the next link: https://www.nch.com.au/components/wpsetup.exe

Try again to check if this solve your  issue.
