BackupExec 2012 catalog folder space
I'm running BE 2012 SP3 with the latest hotfixes and have a question surrounding the size of the catalogs folder.
We have a 100GB folder and only 1.3 GB free so I'm going to need to do something quick sharp before problems arise. We have had many extra servers added to the backup which explains the recent increase in the catalog size and the only options I see available to me are to use NTFS compression on the Catalogs folder, or to add additional disk storage.
I realise that additional disk storage would be the preferred option but I may struggle to find any so it may have to be the compression option, I do worry though about the performance hit once compressed - does anybody have any advice or experience with this?
We need to keep 6 weeks of data so retention and truncate catalog options are set accordingly.
