Can I get some clarification on Windows Server Backup for Exchange 2010?
Posted on 2011-09-17
I've been reading a lot about Windows Server Backup for Exchange 2010 and I have a new installation of Exchange 2010 that I have only moved a single mailbox over to (from an existing Exchange 2003).
I have run the Windows Server Backup, using the full server option, and it seemed to run smoothly enough, but there are two things I don't know:
1. Did my exchange log files really get truncated and how can I check that?
2. Is this full server backup really useful for a disaster recovery? The backup is out on the network and safe from an Exchange 2010 server crash. But is it useable "as is" if I have to do a setup /m:recoverserver in the future?
