I've backed my DB up about 7 times in the past and it's always gotten bigger. This last one was way smaller than the last... Why would this be? Thanks!

Do you have any stats plugin like GUS where you deleted the data? This would be most likely.

Not that I'm aware of. I did delete a bunch of videos from the gallery. But I think they would've added up to more than 40mb's... The database doesn't store videos though, does it?
