Difference between two backups

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?

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.
