The C: drives on this server failed their SMART test and are in a predicted failure state. I have replacement drives on the way but am trying to think of what I need to do to prepare for this reinstall.
I have both a data and a systems state backup but will do new ones this evening.
I have been backing up the exchange database by using the builtin Backup software and backing up this directory:
SERVER2003\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group
On this network we don't use Exchange to handle the mail, only the public calendar and the public contacts. Am I backing up the correct data for Exchange?
What else should I do to prepare?
Thanks a bunch!
