Previous Employees Mailboxes - Valid Recommendation for Back Up and Removal
Posted on 2011-09-06
We currently have the Symantec BU Exec ver 10d software, running on an Exchange 2003 Server. I have created a Backup-to-Disk Folder for a previously named employee. Using the Backup tab, I can then create a backup just for that employees mailbox to be saved in this named employee folder. After BU completes, I was going to save the folder on to a removable hard drive - (yes, I know this part is NOT recommended, but there is no choice, as the budget is zero), then delete the named mailbox in the information store.
Is this a valid recommendation for back up and removal of previous employees mailboxes that are no longer with the company? Other suggestions? There cannot be any further costs involved, as we must use what we currently have.
Please advise - Thanks so much.
