Difference in size of actual access database and its backup

I am facing an issue with my access database. One of my colleagues was trying to update some records in the database. When doing so, access automatically created a backup of the database.

The issue here is the size of the actual database is much smaller than the backup of the database. I don't know why is it so. However, all the data are present. I don't think any data, forms or queries has been deleted.

Can anyone please tell me why there is a difference in the size?

P.S: Some of the tables in access database are linked from MS SQL server.
