StorageCraft Incrementals are large...Server 2008 R2 running Exchange 2010

I am working on a Windows 2008R2 box running Exchange 2010.  The incremental backups are currently very inconsistent with size.  One incremental will be 200MB and 15 minutes later, the incremental is 20GB.  I have run comparisons on the .spi files and do not find a significant amount of data that would allocate/justify such a large incremental.  This is happening on multiple occasions and my backup device fills up much faster than it should.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks!

My assumption on how it works, it sees the exchange data base as one file, large or small. The DB changes often. If it detects a change in between backups, it will back it up again, no matter how big.

I worked with their tech support one time on a similar issue I was having in AD. Have you tried calling their support?

All of my clients are using Storage craft and I love it. I only backup 4 times a day though, so I cant assume this is the exact cause with a backup every 15 minutes. But I bet this is what it is doing...

I know it says SBS, but sounds right on key with what I said above.
