    Database file size is approx 15MB but when I take a backup via File>Backup
    the file size of the backup is approx 8MB!

    Is anything missing from the backup to casue this?

    If you compact your database, (Tools ... Database Utilities ... Compact and
    Repair) you will find a similar reduction in size. The backup procedure is
    doing this for you.
