It was never using local backups to begin with.
it does still have some data, but 200 gigs, it does not.
I was able to get into the docker folder and check to see what was taking up the space. It was all focused on one folder volumes/d2e397a84d2e73d5a8ce97860a01e4d6c4929e6a25fcff0af02c316b0a82d981/_data/
It seemed to contained large files that I transferred onto the server to then move somewhere else. I used cubby for this, so that makes me wonder if cubby retains what is uploaded to it in the docker folder for some reason?
For my uploads I would upload to cubby, then go into the file manager of cloudron to cut paste where I wanted the files.
I don't know if that is a bug or not but I at least found the cause of it by removing everything in there.
