Hello Peter,


Actually the Lima's "offline" files and transitting files can be see here (when your Lima's connected): ~Library/Lima (the folder will have a size of 0 if Lima's box is not connected)


So when you have offline and transitting files, they are here, so it's logical that TimeMachine backup them. You can avoid them by select the folder in TimeMachine.

That's including the "staging" files as well. I noticed Time Machine is backing up large amount of files for no reason after using Lima. I suspect Lima causes Time Machine to backup Lima's files.
