Server 2008 backup

i have a problem in my daily back up from windows 2008 which is my share point server:
the capacity of my backup increases 2G per day where i have set an icrementak back up of my data and i'm sure that the data changes are not more than 100M . i check the backup details and understand that 99% of this 2G belongs to SPACE USED BY BACK UP COPIES .
what should i do to avoid these copies because they are too large?

  1. make sure the folder you're backing up to is excluded from your backup selection.
  2. what backup solution do you use? ntbackup/backup exec/etc? drives/tapes/NAS?
  3. hi mi1ez , thanks for your responce.
    how could i check whether the folder i'm backing up to is excluded from my backup selection.
    and i use windows server backup which is run in windows server 2008.
    i don't get your point about ntbackup/backup exec/etc? drives/tapes/NAS.
  4. Did you set the backup job to include VSS copies?

    yes, i set it to vss full copy because i've read that if you're using a third party application to manage your backups you have to choose VSS COPY BACKUP.
    but if not it's recommended to set it to VSS FULL BACKUP.
