MLS backups getting increasingly larger by the week. Cause?

Postby jaldarith » Sun Sep 25, 2011 1:18 pm

Greetings,

Just after CUBS, the backups were not able to fit on floppies anymore (we are a smaller ward here in Texas), and we were given a flash drive by the Stake. While the flash drive is large enough to fit hundreds of more backups, it takes MLS up to 5 minutes to back up sometimes on the computer we have here in the clerk's office.

What do you think is causing these backups to get larger?

edit: They have gone from 2MB in size to well over 16MB in size from August of last year until this post.

Thank you! I searched for "backup", I should have been more precise.
