When SQL Backup performs backups does it create any temporary workfiles on the C drive?
We are experiencing issues on our DB server with the C drive filling up and consuming 20+GB of storage in a 5 minute window only to be released after the 5 minutes. From this I conclude that the files are of a temporary nature. We are struggling to track down what process is causing the problem. Does SQL Backup perform any compression or encryption on the C drive during backups? If the backups are to network shares, would the work files if used, be on the network share or on a drive local to the machine?
