Replay size factors

Hi all,
Simple curiosity, but thanks in advance to those who know : why two nearly identical flights can give so different replay file sizes?

Replays contain a lot of information, particularly about the traffic around you and ATC Messages. If you have ATC for one flight and not for the other, or if there was more traffic one time than the other, that will affect replay size.

Like said by Kai, it depends on how much live traffic you have.

For example, both John F. Kennedy and Kuwait were featured in one day, I had an almost 500MB file from over 350 aircraft I passed en-route to Kuwait.

Thanks to both of you! Makes sense, eventhough I am impressed how much data is related to other aircrafts chatting their way up or down with ATC!
