    Red face Backup size much too big

    Hello all

    I have a NetBackup client with app. 8 GB data that when backed up creates a backup of a little over 240 GB data. The job doesn't err. Could you please give me some pointers to what is wrong please.

    One way would to be enable to the logging on bpbkar and chnage the verbose level to level 5 and check if the backup size is actually 240 Gb,or create a new backup policy and rerun the backup of 8 Gb and check if the issue is still occuring.
