We have a standard demo server configure that we use to replicate to a few other servers for customer demos. We found that the DCO backup file size is a little too big (around 730M) to copy around easily. I deleted 95% of the rooms and folders, left only one data center in the configure. I saved the change and then cleared all capacity history using the preference setting. I then used "service operations purge" command to purge all log files. I used "backup now" from the Admin UI to create a new backup file, and noticed that the backup file size is reduced only a few mega, nothing major changed. Is there anyway to reduce the 730M backup file to <10M? Why does it still have so much data with only one data center left in the configure?

If you share the backup, we can have a look. Off the top of my head, the solution may include a lot of audit log data.
Update 2015-11-25 15:18: After investigating the actual data, it turned out to be true that the audit log data takes up a significant amount of space. Additionally, the e2m database is the same size as the isxo database so that is also contributing a lot to the total size of the backup.
