I have a quick question. I am near completion of implementing a new backup strategy. I have decided to use the Grandfather-Father-Son tape rotation strategy. My question is how fellow admins/techs handle daily backups of databases such as Exchange and SQL dbs. For example, M-Th I am going to be running an incremental backup. However, I don't feel very confident backing up my Exchange Information Store or other SQL Applications using the incremental method. Maybe I'm paranoid and should not 2nd guess. The other option therefore is using a FULL backup on each db and Exchange. That is fine (and actually what I previously did), however that somewhat defeats the purpose of an incremental backup.
Any thoughts or ideas of best practices, what works for you, etc. I would be much obliged..
