Backup Exec 2010 Byte Count Problem

Created: 20 Feb 2013 | 1 comment

We just upgraded from Backup Exec 10d to 2010.  I have duplcated all of my jobs from 10D.  One job is giving me problems.  When i do a test run for that job it reports around 160,000,000,000 bytes.  When the job actually runs it reports 180,000,000,000 bytes.  Based on my job history in 10d the 160,000,000,000 bytes is closer to what the old jobs were reporting.  Why is there such a difference between the two?

The first place you should be checking is the Backup Job Log from 10d and 2010. Expand Backup Set information and see if any resource has started to backup more data than earlier.
