Issue

What does this really do to a database.

Product Line

TAC I/NET

Environment

All versions of I/Net

Cause

Used the script to make an automatic backup and after the first one, it doubled on the next one. Is this what is expected from the backup?

Resolution

The Automatic backup is a script that will backup the database whenever it is executed. It creates a generic database the first time but does not append it. Each time after that a backup is created and time stamped that it was executed. If it changed in size, then it would have been due to events occurring during the time that has elapsed.
