I am working with 2 servers both OS are MS Windows 2003 and one has SQL Server 2000 Enterprise edition and the other SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition. I have two fairly huge databases (one in each). The one on SQL 2000 server is about 20GB and the full backup time is less than 15 minutes but the one on SQL 2005 server with about the same size takes 2 hours and half to be backed up. What possibly am I doing wrong?
Also on these servers, I have 3GB of memory, in which the SQL 2000 server lets me use all but the SQL 2005 server limits me to 2GB and I cannot initialize the rest.
