I confirm at least one of my test computers is running on SSD and have defrag completely disabled. Yet it still creates about 1GB (948 MB, 926 MB, etc) incrementals every day.
Dmitri said it's not unusual, but I still feel 1-2GB of block changes every day (out of 17GB of data for an idle desktop) is a bit huge. I wonder if it could be reduced by excluding a couple cache/temp dirs (I'll do so more testing on my own, I'm curious).
VEB is using block-mode backups (e.g. if a 100Kb email is added to a 10GB outlook.pst file, we expect that about 100kb is being added into the vib, not 10GB), right?
...unless (not how Outlook works but probably apply to other softwares) the software writes a separated 10GB+100Kb file and once the write is done, the original 10GB file is deleted, that would produce a 10GB (if not 20GB) incremental backup for a 100kb change in 1 file
. Does that make sense?
