Microsoft got to be kidding 16GB

>When doing a systemstate backup on a very small Activedirectory less than 25 users no special things at all.

This backup takes up 500mb in windows 2003 I think this is huge.
But When I did the same backup of the systemstate in Windows 2008 16GB
Microsoft must be kidding, who wrote this backup of the Active directory?
What where they thinking, I don’t have a clue what needs to be backuped so lets backup all
the files on the server?
Please someone build a Active directory substitute so we can get rid of this crap…
