Trouble with Purging in 6 versus Compacting in 5

Using 5 at work with Windows XT Explorer and compacting files has worked well. Trying to use 6 at home with XP Pro and purging is giving me fits. Seems to generate files as opposed to minimizing. My machine or has someone else seen this?
Thank you for your help.

R6 now keeps backup files instead of multiple files in one. In earlier versions when you
compacted all it did is remove the old versions from that file. That is why you saw the
file reduction.
