SQL and Exchange backups

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Good Evening Everyone,

Before I continue another two hours of research I figured I'd pause here and ask you all since I always get great answers on Experts Exchange.  Basically I want to do Continuous backups of Exchange and SQL to be able to send offsite, unfortunately the offsite backup software my client is using does not include Exchange and SQL backups, however it WILL send offsite backups of Exchange and SQL if I do the backups myself.  So I'm wondering how to use VSS/VSC to create continuous backups throughout the day so that I can send them offsite.  I'll be using ntbackup (while it's still SBS 2003 and then using the backup software in SBS 2008 once they upgrade) for local backups.  

Just wondering how do I use VSS or is there a cheap or free software that will do the setup for me?  I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars and my client isn't the type to just throw down money on a whim... unfortunately.  So cheaper is better as long as it's functional.  

Thanks a million,
