Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 with SP 4 Test Run byte size completely different from actual backup
Posted on 2011-10-14
Have Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 SP4. Test run's on SBS 2008 server show 124GB of data to back up according to data selected and tape drive can handle up to 150GB. When ACTUAL backups occur, we are getting up to 280GB trying to get backed up! It absolutely makes no sense. All data manually checked is around 124GB, so the test run seems fine, but the actual backups are really, really off. Any suggestions? I cannot find any solutions to this.
