Exchange not freeing vss space
Greetings - I am using Backup Exec 2010 R2, SP1 to back up Microsoft Exchange 2010. I am using "System - Use Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" as my snapshot provider. On the Exchange server (which is running windows 2008 R2 Enterprise), shadow copies are "Disabled". Backups work, but I recently discover that I have over 100 gigs of "missing" space - IE: Windows file explorer reports 464 gigs used, but the individual files and folders are only taking about 300 gigs of space.
When I right click on "Configure Shadow Copies" in windows file explorer, it reports that "next run time" is disabled, but shadow copies are consuming about 150 gigs on space. I'm assuming that Backup Exec is programmatically creating VSS snapshots. Unfortunately it seems that it is not cleaning up/deleting the snapshots after the backups finish running. How can I get BE to automatically clean up the snapshots?
Thanks in advance!
