Exchange 2003 Backup - 165GB of Data
Posted on 2008-10-06
My Exchange backup has gotten to be 160GB of data a night. We currently have four stores:
First - 50GB
Second - 30GB
Third - 41GB
Fourth - 48GB
I am currently backing them up to the local drive (bad idea, I know) with NTBACKUP but I need to move them to another computer. I start the full backup at 12:30AM and it ends at 8:00AM.
What is the best way for me to back these up? Full, Incremental, Differential? Should I back them up locally and then copy the backup to another computer? Should I back one store up a night?
Is there anyway I can speed up the backup from the Exchange computer to another computer?
