When i enable this setting i am able to create patch of size 15 MB. When i disable the setting the patch size is 500 KB.

Can anybody explain advantages / disadvantages of using this setting.

Thanks in advance

Including whole files instead of binary differences can make sense if you are patching small files or if there's a chance that the file on the target machine isn't identical to the one you used to create the diff, e.g. if the file has been replaced manually or if your patch targets multiple previous versions.
