I have a shared folder that I need to do a backup on. There are apx 1000 messages in it. Is there a simple way to copy the file that contains it (where would that file be)? When I try to export it just grabs the folders... not the messages

You can manually select all messages in that shared folder, then drag-and-drop the selection into a Windows Explorer window; the messages will be copied to that folder as files with a .MSG extension.

Try this on a small number of messages first.

This wouldn't be the best thing for an ongoing backup, but for occasionally copying messages it works fine.  You're already doing regular backups on your Exchange server, right?
