Audit Log Deletion caused Log usage to go Up?

    Hello,
    I noticed our log capacity was over by a 1/2 GB (2 GB max, we were at 2.5)  I deleted 13 audit logs from within D365 Settings area.  I went back to the Admin center the next day hoping to see a substantial drop of storage space and it went up instead! ??   Now we are at almost 5 GB!   Will this go down? It's been 2-3 days and it's still holding steady at almost 5 GB.  Any advice would be appreciated!  Thank you

    @Kevin Knorr I should have noted I'm on D365 Online 9.2 version. Thank you ​

    I am not sure how the online version works.   But for the on premise version as soon as you do a full database backup it truncates the log and goes back to normal.
