how to decrease the size of wordpress site after installing the wordfence

Recently i had a malicious attack on my wordpress website through the EA for elementor , after that i downloaded some plugins for security and monitoring activity , like activity log for logs and wordfence . But after that my site size increased froM 15 GB to 52 GB , and i dont understand why this happened , though i was warned about wordfence , that it would take considerably large amount of resource , but i did’nt expected that much.


itried to optimize my website by wp-optimize , but i did’nt see much difference .

i’m using updraft plus for backup , it is taking 21 GB, i did deleted all the old backups


**due to malicious activity on my website , i update the wordpress and theme and many other plugins like elementor etc.**

>is there way , i can reduce my website size , by deleting unnecessary files . i have hosted my site on aws server.
