exchange 2010 backup
Posted on 2011-09-21
Im using windows server backup on a windows 2008 box with exchange server 2010 installed.
the contractor set up my exchange box and configured the backups as well.
it has a raid 1 c drive.
a raid 1 + 0 d drive (this is where the exchange files are stored)
and a big terabyte sata drive for backups.
i am using windows server backup.
within the scheduled backup tab the settings say
backup item: local disk (c), New Volume (d:)
target disk New volume (G:)
Backup time: every day 11:00 pm
i think the contractor told me this was a full image backup.
in the disk usage section there is the capacity and used space listed along with backup copies available which is 245 copies.
my g drive (the drive where the backups go) is almost full. I have been copying and pasting the g drive windowImageBAckup file and moving it offsite.
since its full i want to take these files off of g drive and just let it start over making the backups for awhile until it fills up again.
if i cut and paste the windowsimagebackup file instead of copying and pasting the windowsimagefile.... will the next backup job scheduled tonight start a completely new image file or will it error out?
