Creating a snapshot of my 11gb website, 160GB droplet and the snapshot size is over 100GB!
Ran GT5 and df -h and no filesystem or partitions are oversized, and the main filesystem still has 140 gb available…
Site is running wordpress and memory/cpu are all normal
Does anyone have any ideas as to why the snapshot size is over 100GB when i dont have 100GB of files on the droplet? Must be making a snapshot of non existant data or something?
