I can give you a general advice: store it in ASCII format
via show, unless you have *VERY* strong reasons against it.
Yes, it results in bigger files (but you can compress them),
and slower (what compression makes even worse) but you gain
easy view/edit and compatibility.  I couple of years ago I
was very fond of binary formats...
