Template files (pbit)

Hi,

 

I would like to ask a question about pbit files.

 

I am currently working on PowerBI reports using Import mode from SQL server. My pbix files have size around 400 MB. 

I am thinkig about storing pbit files for version control purposes. 

My question is apart from data will I lose anything else from files after export to pbit file ?

The information that only data will be lost and all model , visuals and query will remain is all I needed. 

 

Thank you @Uzi2019 for help.
