I can't tell what's happening here unless I see the actual code that produces the behaviour. Just the code should be fine, no need to attach your big file. Also: what exactly is the issue you need to solve?

Then I use the function save to save individual function A to a file say Abig, whose size on the drive is Abigsize. While I can source the file Abig to get back function A after which I save the updated A function to file Asmall, whose size on the drive is Asmallsize. Abigsize is much bigger than Asmallsize. It seems that Abig inherited its memory information from all.txt instead of its own size.
