Backup Exec slow Exchange Mailbox Backup [Solved]

I had a problem with a slow backup performance of Backup Exec.
The whole process took around 12 hours for the mailboxes only ~32GB.

The problem was at least in my case that around the same time of the backup, a database maintenance job was running. It was set to start around 4am.

You can change the schedule of the database job in ESM ==> Server ==> <your exchange server> ==> First Storage Group ==> [tab] Database ==> Maintenance Interval ==> [Customize]

Now you can set your own maintenance schedule which off course does not interfere with your backup schedule.
Hope this will help you in solving slow backups of your exchange mailboxes with backup exec.
