WP clone created larger tables

    Hey there!  This is expected behavior when you clone a site - you get the same site but in a different location so the data will duplicate, including the database size.

    Sorry I can't make sense of this. Why would cloning a DB double it's size? And why only some tables are larger not all. See screenshots.

    Makes no sense should be the same data on both databases.

    Why would cloning a DB double it's size?

    Can you clarify exactly what you're seeing a bit - can you confirm that there are now two separate databases with the same content, but the original database has also doubled?

    The cloned/second db is ~double the size according to phpmyadmin with ~double rows on some tables. It's clear in the screenshots. The larger db is the clone. Original is not changed.

    Interesting - I'm not finding much about that on my end so we'd likely need to see a ticket.
