I have recently changed my backup strategy to something with email notification eg
Cobian backup as client don't have the budget for Symantec backup exec.

All I want to know is what folders do I need to backup using cobian in order to backup the system state on win 2003 and win 2008.

Otherwise is there any other cheap or free software I can use that will backup
Exchange , SQL and the system state?? Even if I have to create scheduled tasks thats fine.But most important must have email notifications on successs or failure of backups and also what files were skipped.

At the moment I found an app called Areca backup not bad almost like cobian except it doesn't backup the system state.

Please any advice is appreciated.JL
