Differential Backups getting larger....
View As Web Page
I am currently running Backup Exec 10 for Windows with a Full/Differential backup scheme. About 3 months ago, my differential backups we about 2GB or less, now they are running close to 6GB and no more information is being accessed than before. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that the Full backup would reset the archive bit, and then the differential backups would backup everything that has been changed since the last full backup. If this is the case, I would expect the last differential backup to be larger than the first, but after the Full backup again, shouldn't the differential backup shrink to a comparable size of when it first started?
Do I have this setup incorrectly? I have this scheme setup as 2 different jobs, Differential and Full. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
