Minimum size needed by the Netvault database?

We thought we had hard drives big enough for our backups, but now I'm hearing that the Netvault database itself is going to be huge.

We are wanting to back up just a single client.  It's about 250 GB in size, and it's approximately 2 million files/directories.  We only want 5 backups, which should fit on a 2 TB drive.

But if I'm reading the documentation correctly, it says that I would need approximately 1.5 TB alone just for the database -- before we even backup anything.

The documentation says that if you disable the search index, most of the database size will be eliminated.  I doubt we need a search index.  We just want to backup the client.

Is all of this true?
