I've set a new Exchange Server up and am wondering the best approach regarding tapes. Prior to the box being rebuilt it was a file server as well as Exchange Server and I used the
Mon - Thrs,
Week 1 -4,
Month 1 -12 method of naming the tapes.
I'm wondering if this is how you guys manage your exchange tape backups as well? Would this be the best way to proceed? I'm thinking that if I proceed in this manor I can (if need be) create a recovery Storage group, restore an IS from Month 2 (for example) and rip out the email that is needed into the production IS. It seems like the way to go but just want to check this is the best way of managing Tapes/Exchange Backup
