Fone Tool backs up little

Why does Fone Tool appear not to back everything up?
Fone Tool 2.1 free version
Sorry I do not remember the iphone model, but it was new, likely iphone 12, 13 or 14. Fully updated iOS.
iPhone in settings > general > iphone storage, reports 200GB used space. After 30 minutes Fone Tool full backup, it produced a 30GB file on Win11. That very much suggests it did not back up much data. Why did that happen?
