hello,
 I have a client that has backupexec backing up a exchange server 200 sp3 . The backup software is on the same machine, and the tape drive is internal. He is getting about 10mb a minute. he has a 21 gb drive, and sometimes it will backup at about 8 hours. but now right now. I have created a natch file to restart store.exe before the backup begins, and they have symantec for exchange, and have put that to only mapi mode. The drive does seem like it needs to be defragmented, but I am not sure what to do any ideas?

It could be that Exchange is fragemented. Veritas has a tech doc on it.

Most of the time the complaint is on backing up the mailboxes.

Here is another one on if it happens to work out that Exchange maintenance is at the same time.
