I've tried different chunk sizes from 5mb to 100mb but it appears that WordPress sessions out before it can complete a transfer of a 4.45GB backup that was done on 6/18/2020. FYI, this was working previously as you can see from the attached document.

This is a bit weird.  I did a back and it archived just fine.  It was a bit over 3GB whereas the other one was about 4.5GB.  However several previous ones wer over 6GB is size.  I'm simply going to download and archived this one file manually.
