    Migrating to a new server, they asked us to use cpanel to export our mysql database and then upload it for them (so that they could import it) using ftp. I noticed that exporting our database, selecting all the tables, it had a size of 120 mb

    However, using cpanel to do a full backup of the web site, it stores our database in the mysql folder and the size of the database there is 182 mb. Why is there a size difference ?
