Have a strange one...
Found a job running on one of my servers. Job did a full backup of a database, using the following:
BACKUP DATABASE [tinyDB]
TO DISK = N'<backup drive location here>'
, STATS = 10
All fine and dandy that the guy decided to set up a backup for this DB, but what scares me is the size of the backup compared to
the size of the DB and LOG. Backup ends up at 250+GB, but when I do a normal backup of the database I end up with a 3GB backup file.
How the heck
... How is that possible?? Can you guys please help me out with any experiences that you guys have had
in a similar situation??
Grateful for all replies..
