Thread needs solution

I used acronis to make 5 backups

On of them is a VM whose size 42GB

This is a server whose data rarely change.
But the backup size 326 GB reached after 30 days
which is incoherent in relation to other backups.
how can I do ?

best regards

Hi Emmanuel,

The total size of backups depends on whether there were any full backups created in the middle, i.e. what were the settings in the original backup plan - the retention rules (GFS? Simple cleanup?) + scheduling (once a day?). If you've run backups in always-incremental mode (default "Single file for all backups" archive format) then the size of incrementals generated (assuming daily backups) is ~10GB which looks excessive. It may be caused by broken/inconsistent CBT record for this VM which reports more changed sectors than it should - additional investigation is required by capturing the log file (View->Show Logs->Save All To File) and contacting our support team in this case.

Thank you.
