Re: Backup size much bigger than actual data

Right, so yesterday we swapped out the USB-drive with an SSD, and removed the folder2ram since it wasn't needed anymore.
We then started a new full backup, but unfortunately, today it's 51% done and it has transferred 4.3 TB /processed 5.7 TB.

Right, so, I've been setting up a new array on the server everything was working on.
It's a 5.4TB volume with about 600GB in use.

I had to move around some files and put a ~600GB file on it temporarily, and deleted it later the same day.
Turns out I seem to encounter the same Bitlooker bug? My first full backup was ~600GB (before my file shuffling), but then the next inkremental was another 600GB (after file shuffling), resulting now in full backups at 1.2TB since then.

I was hoping the next full (synthetic) would rectify this, but it didn't.
