Best Practice for Backing up Exchange 2007

Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003

I want to know the best practices for backups.

I have 70 mailboxes active, I have a raid 5 setup with 2 drives, C and D

C: Windows
D: DB and Logs

I have backup exec and windows has its own NT backup

Any suggestions?

Backup Exec is the best I know of.

you will want to make sure your backups are setup for individual mailbox restore, I believe they still call that option GRT (granular restore technology).

Backup exec is generally far better than NT backup.

You will want to backup the entire store and the individual mail boxes to give the ability to restore single mailbox data.

I don;'t mind purchasing a software for archiving and backing up for Disaster recovery purposes...
