I am working on creating patches for my product but the patches being created are really large.

I have on patch that consists of 2 files being updated (out of 2000 in the product). Yet he msp file is 175 Megabytes. That makes not sense to me. Using a third party tool i verified with a binary comparison that those two files are the only differences.

Any ideas on what I may have set wrong?

I have the exact same problem. I update around 70 files in a test patch. Combined they take up about 100 Mb but the patch is 356 Mb.
I have verified that only the new files are updated on the target PC, so it's not as if it updates over 300 Mb worth of files.
