Mac RAM usage spiking when running Carbon Copy Cloner tasks

I’m experiencing a gradual memory leak with Insync, which I think might be related to a Carbon Copy Cloner task running — Insync’s RAM usage is fairly stable until the CCC task runs, which causes Insync to re-scan and it’s RAM usage to jump by ~1GB. Once scanning is finished the RAM usage remains and doesn’t reduce.

I’m not sure why this might be happening, as the CCC task is backing up the Macintosh HD, which isn’t the drive that Insync’s folder is on as I’ve got my user data on a different drive to the OS on Macintosh HD. The Insync app itself is installed on Macintosh HD, though I’m not sure this is relevant? The CCC backup runs twice a week (Monday & Thursday at 11.00AM)

Can someone take a look into what might be happening here? Can anyone recreate this issue? Happy to provide logs if it helps.
