Because 9.7 Gb worth of your files were changed in some way since the last
backup. They were opened, moved, renamed, or otherwise utilized in some way
either by a human or by the computer. Almost all of your system files will
be backed up every time. Retrospect is very conservative in this area; if
*anything* is different about a file, it gets backed up.
