    Answer:
    When you process a dimension by using the Process Update processing option or the Process Default processing option, the string file store (.asstore) is appended instead of being overwritten. This behavior reduces the process time even if no change is made on the string attribute. If the dimension is frequently processed that way, the string file store will become very large. When the string file store reaches 4 GB, you can no longer process the dimension by using the Process Update processing option or the Process Default processing option. You will receive an error message:
    “File system error: A FileStore error from WriteFile occurred. Physical file: ....”
     
    If you are doing ProcessUpdate on a regular basis, I would suggest doing processFull now and then. When you process a dimension by using the Process Full processing option, all the data of the dimension will be dropped and reconstructed. The string file store will be smaller.
