Hello,

I am using BE 2010 (v13.00 rev 2896 x64) installed on W2008R2 file server.

1 - I am backing up users data to another partition on the same server based on full monthly backup with weekly and daily backup (grandfather father son rotation scheme)

2 - I am ALSO backing up users data to a removable HDD (Dell RD 1000 1Tb Media ) based on full monthly backup with weekly and daily backups (grandfather father son rotation scheme) .

Backup policies are different but selections are the same  (ie always backing up user data folder)

My current problem is ; If the full monthly backup of the 2nd step is done after the full monthly backup of step 1, the backup size of  step 2 is getting very small.

Logically both full backups size must be the same

Any idea ?

Thanks
