These files are all open and you shouldn't really back them up. The first one, tmp.edb, contains the dhcp database, but this isn't important and changes all the time. The 2nd is part of exchange, but to backup exchange you need the exchange agent installed and then select the exchange server store which will show up in the selection list. The others are open transaction log files of exchange server, and these logs also need the agent installed.

Anyway, it is better not to select the complete "C:\" drive of your server when backing up. Backup the data, not the OS and software!

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
