If you are using a hard drive to back up to, and the drive is formatted NTFS, then in the properties of the backup to disk folder, you can set the maximum file size.

It is already set that way. We are using a Black Armor Nas, formatted NTFS. But, it is still creating the small files. Any ideas why?

in symantec backup, changing the file size limit etc requires quite a bit of configuration settings etc.
I would recommend you Acronis which is much better faster and more reliable
You can create an initial image and then define incremental backups
Means one bigger image file and incremental backups will be the changed files only which wont exceed few hundred mb

If you are doing backup-to-disk jobs, Go to your backup-to-disk folder properties and that's where you can change the backup image size. It will be located under the Devices tab somewhere. Sorry, I'm on BES 2011 so I don't recall where it's at on 11D.

Go to Tools > Options > Backup-to-Disk

inside the "Backup up-to-disk file Management" option

Change the value to whatever size you want.
