I am using a sharing host fro my blog. I have installed wpdb_backup plugin which sends me a zipped backup of my database daily via email. There are about 100 plus posts in the blog and the zipped file size is around 500 kb. If I unzip it it comes to around 2.5 MB. I cannot see my database size from the hosting control panel, but my host tells me I have used 12 MB out of 50 MB. Isn't this kind of strange? I mean the unzipped file is just 2.5 MB whereas, the database size is 12 MB. Can anyone please help or give some suggestions in this regards?
Many thanks in advance.
