  • BackupExec 12.5 Backup Size Issue

    We started using BackupExec 12.5 to backup the data on our Win2008 Server. We have around 80GB worth of data that we are backing up.

    Whenever we run a backup job ( Full Backup), the backup data is always more than the source data size.. like say 120gb+

    Why is this so?

    Being 2008 ignorant, is there anything else you have selected to backup, like System State?
    What happens when you restore the backed up data? Does it revert to 80GB or are there other files in the restored location?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      If you are able to provide remote access to the system, I may be able to look into the issue
