[Athen] ABBYY Fine Reader 9 Problems

We just upgraded from ABBYY Fine Reader 8 to version 9, and find
ourselves slammed by the huge files the new version creates. Anyone
know whether it's possible to tell Fine Reader 9 to work with smaller
files? We scan in 300 DPI resolution and in grey scale from within Fine
Reader. To give you an idea of what we are facing, all of our fall
e-text required 2.5 Gb of hard disk space. That was with using version
8 of Fine Reader. With version 9, we have used up 40 Gb of space, and
we've hardly begun our conversions. Either we are doing something wrong
or the new version is a memory pig of exponential dimensions. Thanks in
advance for any advice!
