BackWPup Free - WordPress Backup Plugin
Keeps on creating progressively bigger archives (2 posts)

    I complained about this before. The zip archive size keeps increasing exponentially daily even though I have moved the backup folder out of the wp_content folder and restricted the backup to just wp_contents. Plus the number of files I set to store in the backup folder is ignored.

    check the files that are included in the backups and ensure you are not backing up a folder that the plugin stores temp files in, this would account for the ever increasing size. i found a temp folder of files n my wp-content/uploads folder. I had to exclude it.

    all part of me trying to get this to work again. have not worked well since the 3.0 upgrade. im going back to 2.17
