Sharepoint Backup size RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    We have an intranet site which holds few documents.It is not really a big farm.I use stsadm.exe to backup the URl.Recently we have observed that the size of the backup is almost getting doubled.it used to be 60gb before 4 months.Now it was 136Gb.I am not a sharepoint admin.So,can anyone please help me if i need to shrink anything like how we do for databases?

    Command for backingup:stsadm -o backup -url http://hcau1 -directory E:\SPSBACKUP -filename backup.dat -backupmethod full -overwrite
