[SD] Sparse Image 'size creep'

Hello all,

Here's my query...

I back up my main HD (which at present is using ~ 18gb), I run SD using Smart Backup (this usually takes around 5 minutes), my final backup image weighs in at around 22.4gb.

Why is there this size increase?

It seems to happen every time (a size increase), even if not much has changed.

Apologies if this is a silly question, I am just curious.
