Hi @asafche

We have a help article with some suggestions here that might help:

To go a little deeper, what is contributing the most to the site’s size? If the site has things like lots of images, video or audio files, these should probably be offloaded anyways because once the site is live they will only hinder it’s performance. We recommend WP Offload Media

If the site is full of things like backup folders, these should also be offloaded to external storage like Google Drive or Dropbox.

If you need more manual steps to get the site loaded into Local, you can follow these as well:
