One of our Senior SQL DBA’s, Andy Galbraith, authored a blog post that shares an example of a client that might actually have too many backups.  Our monitoring services detected that backups were taking a very long time to run.  In Andy’s article, he details the exact issues, and offers advice on what to look for to ensure you are efficiently backing up.
