Generate a report to identify data growth.

In Symantec Backup Exec 12, how can I generate a report to show the data growth over the last month on a per server basis?

For exaample, let's say a month ago, my incrementals where 250gb in size, a month later lets say they are over 800gb in size, and I need to generate a report to show who the guilty server is.

None of the standard built in reports seem to show the information I need.

Thanks

My experience with previous versions of BackupExec didn't expose comparative reporting like that (but maybe it's been added in the later versions). We used to use TreeSize Pro from a scheduled task to generate XLS files on a periodic basis, and then used Excel conditional formatting to highlight differences (new directories, directories that changed by more than "x" MB or "y" percent) between two XLS snapshots.

It was a bit "home grown", but it worked for us.

Yeah, there isn't any option that I can find or anyone can offer, maybe they will have it in the next version.
