    Hi guys,

    I’ve just setup NTBACKUP, it all runs well but the problem I’m facing is that, it is taking up to 12 hours to backup a five user site. I had a look at the logs and it says that it is taking longest on the Exchange databases.

    Backup Status
    Operation: Backup
    Active backup destination: File
    Media name: “FullDailyBackup.bkf created 20/04/2011 at 10:00 PM”
    Backup (via shadow copy) of “C: ”

    Backup description: “Set created 18/04/2011 at 6:03 PM”

    There is no way that the exchange databases are 340GB! The whole exchange folder including the databases are just over 6GB. See below.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.[CODE]
