HI - everytime I run an incremental backup on Exchange it jumps another 40GB in size. Surely this can't be right?

Could you please explain how do you run the backup and which Exchange version are you using?

Also, what is the size of your full Exchange backup please?

HI expone,

I'm running the in-built "ntbackup.exe". I select the 'Microsoft Information Store" and backup to a network drive. It's set to 'Incremental".

The information store itself is only about 45GB, hence my annoyance at at incremental backup now standing at 139GB!!
