Hi

A folder of 258gb is the one am supposed to be backingup, the the Job shows it was successful but with only 59.1gb. Am i taking any valid Backup for my system.

Ans Are you backing up this to tape or disk. It was successfull only in 59.1 gb this you see in job log or this is used space of your tape were the backup is going too,were do you see this? Moreover if you see from tspe used space what is the compression ratio you have got ,please check. Also good will be to verify from restore to check for thst server that what you have selected is it the same seen in restore selection.
Thanks

In the Backup and Restore tab, click on the server and then click on Backup Sets.  Select the backup set for the job and you would be able to see what are the resources that are backed up.

Also, there are some types of files that would automatically be excluded from any backup by AFE.  These include Exchange files, SQL databases, etc.  To back up these applications, you need to use the application agents.

If part of this directory is under DSFR, then it would not be backed up.  To backup things under DSFR, you need to backup the system state.
