Hi I am using symantec backup exec system recovery for sbs, my standard backup size using ntbackup is 15GB, if I use symantec to set an offsite backup to an ftp drive using 'high' compression, what is the likely compressed size going to be? and is it likely to be breaking the standard fair usage policy that most isp's set?

Your asking a question that can't be exact by nature of how compression works.  BESR's compression isn't much different from the same algorithm's used for zip, rar, etc.  I find with my backups i get anywhere from 1.2:1 to 3.5:1 compression.  Meaning i can fit anywhere from 1.2GB to 3.5GB in a single gig (and only transmitting 1 gig).   15 GIG's a day is a lot, hopefully your using a commercial account of some type and not a residential connection.  Who's your ISP, what kind of connection do you have?
