That does appear excessive, which version of the forum are you running? There were a number of major changes to the backup script in release 2.2.1, which cleaned in up a lot.
For example, I just did a backup of a 4,000 message forum and it came out to 25 megs compressed.

Good Smile

Part of the problem was that the archiver would backup the forum's tmp directory, which contained the archive. Hence the bloated archive size.
