About how long does a full backup of exchange 2010 take?  If I start it at 9:00PM will it most likely be done by 5.;00am the next day?  I know it depends on how big the mailboxes are but I am just asking an estimate time.

How long does it take to walk to the shops?

About as much sense as your question im afraid.

I have one exchange system takes 1 hour

Another that takes 5 hours.

I know of one admin who if he did a full backup everyday it would not finish before the next one started.

what is the backup destination - DAS, TAPE, another server over slow vpn ? It will affect backup speed.
Just for a reference  -one of my clients  backup to scsi tape on the same server takes about 5 hours  to backup 550GB of data.

Hi lalexander53,

I have 105 user with 50 GB mail data on Exchange 2010. When I use full backup to tape Dell RD1000 160GB SATA HDD, it takes around 20-25 minutes. I also noticed similar result for my 1TB USB external HDD.
