Nothing else running on this Windows 2003 Server. It is a file server for our company and has approximately 700GB of files on it. NIC is at 1GB, as is the NIC on the dedicated BackupExec server, both plugged into the same switch. Backups are going to SCSI disk. The BackupExec server will backup other servers plugged into the same switch with the same NIC at 1800MB/min., however when it backs up the file server, it takes 27 hours at about 350MB/min. on average./ Why the difference in speed and what can I do to increase the backup speed of this server???? Thanks.
