Not sure the above method would work for you, as they are certain not easy to follow. The method is more to advance user to backup individual mailbox for a particular purpose, rather then for a general day to day backup routine.

A very common tool is Symantec Backup Exec, but they are certainly not the cheapest. I used to do brick level backup in my company but process takes too long, beside I found Recovery store is simple to use so haven't used brick level for years.

The backup utility built into SBS 2008 is Exchange aware and does a full Exchange backup. Is there a reason the SBS backup tool is insufficient for your uses?

Cliff can you restore individual mailbox's with the SBS 2008 Exchange Backup ? can you export mailbox's to a pst form the SBS 2008 Exchnage backup ? Is there a utility that can be used for this purpose?

Many thanks for thsi information , could you provide some guidance or links on how to restore the database to an Exchange Recovery group and from there export or restore individual mailboxes ?
You need to be aware that using Recovery storage do require sufficient disk space. I think you can restore to an USB drive but not sure about that,.
