Slow Performance on backing up Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Store

I�m trying out backupexec 11.d.
The Exchange Agent is installed and I created a job to backup the exchange server. The Backup is running well, but the performance while backing up mailbox- and information store is slowing down to about 90MB/min. I usually have a rate of 900MB/min on my Backup-Net.
Does anyone has an explaination for this?

I am having the same problem, under our setup in BE 10 it took us 3-5 hours and now with BE 11 it is taking 6-10+ hours to backup.

Looked at best practices but found nothing that would help me solve this performance issue.

Could someone point me to what I need to do?
