Report shows backup size shows 500MB. Backup file is 48GB.

Title says it all. My backup reports show a "Backup Size" of between 500MB and 2GB every day. When I look on the backing store, the backup files are 48GB every day for the incremental and 110GB for the full.

I'm capturing the backups using CBT on an ESXI server. I verified that CBT is turned on for each VM. I've also checked the -ctk files for the VMs and they stay very small and seem to line up roughly to the 500MB-2GB size that Veeam reports as the backup size.

I'd like to get the size of those backup files down - any thoughts?

Thanks!

Hi,
What does VBR say about Data size, Read and Transferred size?
By the way, do you have ReFS on the backup repository?
Thanks!

Nevermind. I was looking at an older report. The sizes do actually match up. I'm on to the next step: Investigating why ESXI is reporting 48GB of CBT changes on a disk that only has 6.1 GB of allocated space.
