Really big backup size on HA w/ Docker?

I’ve created automation which uses the backup.create service
It runs twice a week, and I can see the backup file size is getting bigger and bigger with no much sense.
On July 23rd it was 2GB
On July 30th it was 12GB
On Aug 2nd it was 29GB
I didnt add anything significant to the config dir and the home-assistant_v2.db is only 130MB

I’m running the HA on Docker

I could be your log file, if you have a lot of errors that repeat then it’ll size up pretty fast.

It looks very small:

You could always download your backup and unzip it on your computer to check the contents.
