    Hi,

    I'm using BackUpWordPress plugin and recently I've seen an unusually rapid growth in the size of DB of my small blog.

    With files, it's always around 30MB, but in the recent month it went like this:

    1 week - 1GB
    2 week - 5GB
    3rd week - 9GB
    4th week - 18GB (!)

    And I haven't even posted a single article during this time.

    What's going on? Thank you!

    Just a thought, you're not including the parent folder of your WordPress installation in your backups are you? I've noted that some backup solutions provide this option. If so, who knows what you're backing up!
