A question about schedule file sizes

There is an option “Embed media in schedule file”
What would be the advantages of doing that?
It makes them really slow to load, and takes a lot of room, but then I think – what am I missing by not doing this?


It means the schedule becomes transferable to another PC, even if the original media (such as images, videos, etc.) isn’t on that PC. Without that option checked, the file size is much smaller since it won’t include all that media.

Thanks – that’s good to know.
I sync my production computer to Google Drive continuously and to a standby computer weekly, so it isn’t likely I would need to turn that on, but it’s comforting to know that it is there if necessary.
