I've backed up the data of my Simply Accounting 2005 file and it comes out to 9.416 KB. However when I attach the .CAB file to an email, it now says the size of the attachment is 9.43 MB ?

9.416 KB is a pretty tiny file. Are you sure you are reading the display correctly?

The size change is typical. The operating system rounds up to the number of whole blocks it uses.
