One of the smaller UNIX servers I backup has a home directory which is 3 GB in size 55 % full.

The DP backup is 26 GB of the /home directory?

Hi Mike,

If you're out there you're vulnerable. People prefer to disappear in life , to repress their personality. That's not living,it's dying. I see them all over the place, the walking dead.

Re: DP 6.0 backup larger than mount point

Ok,check in your backup logging wich directory causes the problem,probably one who's way larger then the other ones or compare them with a normal backup.

We have found the answer, the database (cache) uses sparce files for the exports which take up little space until you back the up.
