Hi @ all,

I make a backup from our data server every day and most of the time there are only small jumps but at least i had a big jump ...
at 10.03. the backup was 68gb and on the 11.03. 152gb!

is it possible to check whats different between the two backups?
Backuptype: File Archiving

thx 4 your help,
M.

Hi there,

Thanks for posting on our forum.

Are you sure you're not running a full and incremental backups? Typically this is the reason why there are large differences between backups.
The only way to compare the two files is to use a file comparison tool - there are many available online that should help you figure out what difference there is.
