I have a document library (MOSS 2007) with Major versions, 5 versions, turned on.
I recently added a new column to the library - it happens to be a lookup from another List if that matters.
When I Edit Properties of an existing document, and add my new column data, I see a new Major Version created.
My Question: does this actually consume new space in the back end. So if I have a 100KB Word Document uploaded, and now add my column, from the Version History page it looks like there are now two 100KB-consuming versions of the document.
Or is it smart enough to not duplicate the actual document, but merely the new column meta-data?
