My simulink project size keeps on increasing, despite no change in strucutre and no data storage (atleast no storage from me). I had started out with 6 GB and now I am at 14 GB despite there being barely any structural chnages.

I understand that the size of your Simulink project keeps on increasing despite of no changes in the structure or data usage.
When you save a Simulink model with two or more Simulink Editor windows open, information is stored in the model file to recreate those windows when the model is later reopened. However, in some circumstances, that information might increase in size with each save cycle. Eventually, this extra information can slow down the process of reopening and resaving the project.
A workaround for this could be to close all but one Simulink Editor window before saving the model. This mitigates additional file size increases due to extra window information, but it may not reduce the number of copies already created.
