    Could you download the small and large backups and compare contents to see why one is so much bigger than the other.

    The new update version will automatically enable database + files backup, regardless your previous setting. So if your previous setting was only to backup database (not including files), you will see significant file size difference.

    My previous backup sizes are about 2 MB. But after used the new update, it became 300+ MB.

    So, did you also choose to backup the files? If not, your previous backup sizes will be a lot smaller than this new setting. I did see on the screenshot, you’re currently enable to backup database + files.

    The new version should migrate your existing settings so if you had a database only backup before, that should be carried over.

    @tom Willmot:

    No, it’s not on my websites. I have 2 websites. Both of them after updated, the settings changed to backup database + files once daily. I’m sure the settings were database only once weekly.

    I realize the problem because the backup size grew from 2 MB to 320 MB. After I reconfigure it, it seems back to normal now.

    Thanks for reporting your issue, I’ll re-test locally and see if I can track down why that is and fix.

    I ever had multiple schedule issue. I followed your instruction to de-activating and then re-activating, so the problem solved. Perhaps the problem was not fully solved, and being carry to here.
