site disk space
My latest whole-site backup is 2.5GB, up from 1.5 GB in June. At this rate I think it is going to become unmanageable soon.

Any tips?

I think my YaBB forum is largely responsible.

It is my preference not to place any technical limitations on the forum - eg by archiving old threads.

Re: site disk space
Make sure you archive your old backups off the main server and remove them from the main server. Within YaBB you can also choose to backup only the changed files - usually, Boards, Messages and Members and stuff in yabbfiles.

Use compression on your backups if you have that.
