Thank you for your detailed answer.
To be clear about it we are using the downgraded version of the BimCloud. When you say the BimCloud is heavier you mean something like 300mb to 450. im talking about 300mb to 4000mb.
I did do this test yesterday, what you suggested, the file is maintained quite clean and saved locally and reloaded file size dropped from above 4GB to 450mb.
My questions are :
1. what data got erased moving from 4GB to 450mb ?
2. why do we need to save locally and re upload while this can be automatically done ?
3. are slowdowns and long upload time related to big vs small files ?
4. why do files get so big from the first place ? i noticed that happens with linking IFC's - until the point where we cannot work with hotlinked IFC's anymore because it does not remove all the data after deleting the IFC links.
5. should we actually re-upload models every now and then ?
Any suggestions how to tackle these ? I'm really disappointed with the reliability of archicad concerning these. thanks in advance.

BimServer is called now BimCloud.
BimCloud migrates all model elements to editable elements for all the work team.
BimCloud is often heavier than the same project by a PLN file.
I've allready saved a PLN from the Teamwork BimCloud to :
- delete all unused views
- delete all unused attributes
- delete all unused documents
- delete all unused library parts
Then I've uploaded this cleaned PLN back to the BimCloud
The teamwork project's weight was divided by 3
Since when do you keep this project on your bimCloud without cleaning it ?
