I am using Backup exe 9.1. on wndows 2000 server, recently the time it takes me to back up has doubled. I changed the tape, recreated the back up job and it didnt help. I noticed areal slow back up on a remote windows 2000 file server. I tried to defrag the data base partition on that server but it seems that it cant defrag as the state of the partiotions looks the same after the defrag. I am not sure whether the roblem lies in that as the bafk up rate changed drastically in 1 day. The only changes I made to the srvers before that was unstalling windows update .
There is free 50 GB HD on each server.
