Hello, I just purchased Acronis Backup and Recovery 10 and would like to implement a new backup routine using Acronis to backup our Exchange server.
The current backup is simply using NTBackup and backing up the Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group\
When I create my new backup with Acronis and need to select data to backup , I am unable to select Microsoft Exchange Server\server name \Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group\
Can someone assist ?

Does Acronis have an Exchange 2010 agent?  I don't believe it does and because it is an imaging solution it would only be able to do a copy of the information store but not flush the logs that NTBackup would do.

@ComputerTechie: The agent will restore emails but it will not clear the Exchange logs which can lead to larger issues.  Acronis performs a copy job and granular restore but does not clear logs.  An option is to do circular logging but there's a risk in losing emails in case of failure.  This can be used in conjunction with NTBackup or a product that will backup and flush logs
