my backup of my exchange box is pretty basic...
my box does a full server image everynight.

exchange data is housed on the d drive.
D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14

is it ok to just backup the d drive nightly for exchange data....
and then backup up the c drive once a month?

if anyone has a good strategy for backing up exchange 2010 on a 2008 wiindows server box feel free to advise.
would like to use native windows backup if possible

There is no right or wrong way to backup.  What you need to ask yourself is how much data can you afford to lose?

If using Windows 2008 R2 see my backup guide here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2452-Backing-up-Exchange-2010-Information-Store-using-Windows-Backup.html
