Hello Experts,

We have recently purchased CA ArcServe R15 and there D2D product for bare metal images. We run a daily backup job on our Exchange 2007 server. Would it be advisable to backup all the files on the C: drive as well as the information store? Or just the store? We are looking to keep our backup times down. Any recommendations would be helpful.

normally it should be enough to backup the IS , but it would be best to also have at least a monthly backup of the entire system (image) which would help a lot in case of disaster

Agree with setasoujiro.

but it would be better to have full system backup weekly instead  of monthly.
