SBS 2003 Exchange backup log issue

I have a client with a Small Business Server 2003. I have separate backup job scheduled for the system state, data and exchange data file.

The first two backups (system state and data backup) work perfectly. There is an issue with the exchange backup on the server.

The backup job completes and verifies the backup of the exchange data store was successful, but when I examine the backup logs, there are no mail files displayed in the mail folder.

Why is this happening - and how do I fix it?

Are you using the SBS Server backup utility or some third party software?

I am using the sbs server backup utility.
I wanted to add, when I examine the backup long the backup and verify are successfully completed with afile size of 7 gig. When I go into the restore utililty, the original backup is displayed, but when I expand out the directory structure (to browse for the file structure), there are no mail files.

Hello dwknight,

there are no mail files, there is only the mail store that is being backupped >> MDBDATA folder and content should be present

Sorry about the late follow up.
Is it possible to backup all of the mail files as separate pst files using an unattended process?

Thanks
