Why Does Storage Usage Keep going up on main site?

I have storage space monitoring enabled on all sites, and I notice on my main site it seems to be going up 25 MB or so at a time every day, even though I am not really uploading very much at all. I have added plugins and themes, but it seems that this number goes up even when I don't add anything. Is it related at all to what is happening on subsites? Right now it's at about 350 MB. I do have quite a few WPMU plugins, about three dozen themes, and a few other non-WPMU plugins installed. I am sure this could easily account for that usage, but as I say the number seems to go up even on days when I add nothing to the site. Exactly how is this number arrived at?

    Hi @williamkowalski,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    I think this is strange, if you are not uploading new content, creating new subsites, updating themes/plugins.

    I tried to make some research in order to find a explanation for that, but, honestly, I was unable.

    I hope our members can share your experience and bring their opinions to the topic.

    Cheers, Luís

    Ok, that information unblocks the puzzle :slight_smile:

    The backups are the responsible, if you are using our Snapshot Pro plugin, in Snapshots -> All Snapshots, you can see the size of each archive, to make sure that they match with the space consumed.

    Cheers, Luís
