When a Confluence Cloud Site backup exceeds 200 MB, what should I do?

There has been a site on this domain since June 2020.
There is no limit to how much data can be contained in a backup zip file (uncompressed XML files) and how many attachments can be contained.
As I backed up my Confluence site, it had 906MB, and the attachments folder had 800MB, but the import failed. The restore page contains a link to an "alternative method of restoring data".
Do you have any suggestions for how to proceed? Although I've looked around, I haven't found any useful information. Thank you.

Hi @Acees Messe ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

In addition to @Alex Koxaras _Relational_ , please take a look to the following ticket


  • Reduce space size by curating and archiving older data into backups to meet compliance needs.
    Break down larger spaces into smaller spaces that meet the ~200MB size limit for imports.

Hope this helps,
