My previous CA Software Asset Manager install zip file was over 930MG in size, but the new one is a smaller file size. Why is the newer SAM file size much smaller?

Issue:

Previously, our CA Software Asset Manager install zip file was around 930 MB in size.  Recently, the zip file sizes we download are much smaller.  They are only about 360 MG.   Why is the SAM file size different? 

Environment:
CA Software Asset Manager 4.x release
Resolution:

The CA Software Asset Manager install zip files will include one or many languages.  If you are licensed for one or two languages, then the file size will be around 350 GB.   If you are licensed for all languages, then the file size will be around 930 GB.   

Please note that the file sizes mentioned here are approximate and may change with later release levels.
