Hi,

The PostgreSQL server database contains the agent/backup related information as well as meta-data information of the backed-up data, which is needed for recovery process. The size of the PostgreSQL Data folder can vary depends upon the size of the total backup data stored in the backup server. The approximate database size may be around 1% of total backed-up data size. So when the backed up data size grows, the database size will also grow up accordingly and it can't be shrinked.

If the database is getting bigger and if you don't have enough space on the drive, you can move the postgres db location, by following the below KB article,
