Norton 360 Backup Problem -- Backup File is HUGE
Please help me resolve a problem I am having using the Norton 360 Backup feature. I am running version 188.8.131.52 on Windows XP SP 3 and have 2 backup sets. Set 1 backs up 40GB on my C drive to my external E drive. Set 2 backs up 152 GB on my external E drive (excluding the Set 1 backup) to my external F drive. The backup files are absolutely enormous. The Set 1 backup file on my E drive is 289 GB. The Set 2 backup on my F drive is 306 GB. I am quickly running out of room! I would think the backup files would be smaller than the original files. The Set 1 backup file is 7 TIMES the original. Please tell me what I am doing wrong!
