Default GIGANTIC FILE SIZE

Ok, I recorded a session this weekend on my 002R, 24 bit/44.1 sample rate. The song is about 3.5 minutes long. There are 19 tracks of audio (1 being a stereo track). After I finished my editing, I consolidated all of the regions to the same size so I could scrap all the extra stuff (bad takes and what not) to prevent the unnecessary waste of hard drive space. When I looked at the file size afterwards, almost every track of 3.5 minute audio is 1.98 GB!!!!! Last I checked it should be around 1/4 of a MB, which is what some of the tracks are. Has anyone seen this before or know what causes it?? I'm using 7.4. Thanks in advance.

Cory

When you did the consolidation, how did you select audio on the tracks?

I'm guessing your selection extended to the end of the session, rather than to the end of the last region on a track, and Pro Tools created consolidated audio files that were as large as it could make them - 2gb.
