In the case of a simple filesystem backup (BA), set the RESOURCEUTILIZATION 
parameter in the client dsm.opt/sys file to allow for multiple mounts and set 
the MAXIMUM MOUNT POINTS (maxnummp) in the Node config to allow for how many 
drives you want to let them use.
I tend to set it like this for my four drive clients.
update node NODENAME maxnummp 4
Add this to dsm.sys file in the Windows world or dsm.opt for Unix.  
resourceutilization 10      
This page explains the setting a littl better than I could as the numbering 
system is just strange.
Hope that helps

The problem is that changes are not gradual. Files are actually monthly
backups coming from other backup software like Acronis, BackupExec and even
native MS SQL backup files (yes, it is weird!) . I don't think journal
could help a lot, because there are not many files, but some large ones.
