Note, however, that the larger the file, the longer the full save will take
to save.

For example, you could have a ten-page Word file with embedded graphics on
each page that is two megabytes in size. Now it's possible to get around the
size problem using other methods, but the point I want to make is that if
you have such a file, it will take considerably longer to do a full save
than a fast save.

It's a trade off.
