Using Retrospect to backup Exchange on a Small Business Server

TedMorey asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-19
Hi - were running Retrospect SBS v7.5.387 on our company WIndows SBS. As an Exchange newbie can I ask some for advice re: backing up mailboxes. Within the Retrospect "sources" we can see a "storage group" and individual mailboxes.

1. What is the difference between the two??

2. Should we be backing up both??

3. Windows seems to store the "storage group" file as a single big file which grows slightly each day. In our instance this means we are chewing up around 3GB of additional storage space every day when doing an incremental backup. Is there a way to grab just the changes and not the whole file??
