I am running Veritas Backup Exec on a Windows Server 2003. I have two seperate jobs that back to a hard drive ((BackUp-To-Disk Folder) instead of tape. Job A and Job B shows to be 27 Gb and 72 Gb. But when I look at the file on the hard drive I see the same two files (I verified the names of the file) are 5 Gb and 55 Gb. Late last week I did turn on software compression. I just wanted to find peace of mind that "Software compression" was the reasoning behind this. I cannot find anything on veritas to help me support this, or I am not just using the correct key words to search by. Just a FYI,
Job A backups up a SQL server and Job B backs up an Exchange 2003 server. Once again thanks for all the help.
