If it is doing what you say, you need to figure out what it is that it is backing up so much, or repair the backup as something is wrong.
If you are backing up databases, like Entourage or Outlook email files, then every little change to the database causes the entire database to be backed up. That would take a lot of time and eat up space rather quickly.
