Symantec BESR Incremental too big


I have BESR 7.0.4 installed on a windows server 2003 file server (File03)
I am doing incremental backup every hour.
File03 is synchronized with DFS with a mirror server (File01) which is also backed up the same way.
The incremental snapshot on file03 are abnormally huge (from 1 to 10 Go). The incremental on File01 are between 70 and 300 Mo.
Fil03 support 18 users and there is no way they can change that much information : total size of all their files is 19 Go.
File01 support 50 users and their total size is 50 Go.
I have tried reinstalling BESR from scratch, disabling DFS replication with no success.
I have also try to search for all the files modified in a period of time where the backup is performed without any luck (backup file is 10 Go, total size of modified files is 4 Go)
Does anyone have a similar issue ?

thank you for your help.

In fact, I find out that DFS was replicating huge PST files from file01. I stop it from synchronizing pst and it seems all right now.
