I have not been able to find a clear answer to this question. Maybe I can force it out into the open. My question is what directories should be excluded during an Exchange Server backup (I am running exchange 2003) with Veritas when the Exchange agent is installed (hot backup). I have heard some say that the entire \Exchsrvr directory should be excluded from backup. I have not seen any Veritas documentation supporting this. I have also read where some people are saying to exclude just the \Exchsrvr\MDBDATA folder only.
