Hello, I wonder if you can help.

We have a copy of Backup Exec System recovery version 8 running on a HP ML350 windows 2003 server. The backup is currently set to create a base recovery point once a month and run incremental backups for the rest of the month. This has been fine but for the last four nights the incrementals have been huge 40Gb+ , we are a small charity of approx 250 users so it is very hard to believe that our users are created 40Gb of new files everyday ...

Has anybody come accross this problem and do you have any advice ...

Are you including PST stores?  These have the modified dates changed when they are opened even if nothing actually changes on them.

Users can create a personal pst file and store that one on the fileserver.
Those files will be backed up completly everyday and tend to be large.
