Hi
When you backup a DC is it good practice to backup the system state seperate do the data on the server?
The only reason why I ask this is because I read when you backup exchange you should backup the IS store seperate to the system state.

Thanks

ISince you can restore either they system state and or data together or individually it makes little difference - Its a lot less hassle just to do a full backup which includes the system state
