We have full backups on a Friday of our Exchange 2007 Mailbox servers and incrementals other nights.

On Tuesday, I am moving a couple of mailboxes from mailbox store IS1 on Exch1 server to IS1 on Exch2 server.

Do I need to run a full backup on Tues night after these mailbox moves? I'm thinking along the lines of if I need to restore them from that Tues, Wed or Thurs. Can I still restore them seeing as they weren't present in the prior full backup?

I would run a full backup of the target database once it's moved if it's possible to split up your backup jobs.

Also, when moving the mailboxes, you want to keep an eye on log files - they will grow very quickly depending on the items in the mailboxes being moved.

Typically, when moving mailboxes I will take a full backup, turn on circular logging, move the mailboxes, disable circular logging, and then run another full backup.
