I was comparing the size of my database backups to my mailbox level backups and 
I found a discrepancy of about 10 Gigs (Database is 35 GB Mailboxes are 25 GB). 
 Is there some kind of overhead to the database that I am missing??  Should I 
do an offline defrag of the stores? Just curious, nothing earth shattering :-)  


Also, there usually aren’t many log files because I do a full backup every 
night and also each day an Incremental is done every two hours. In other words, 
I don’t believe log files account for the difference.
