We are using Microsoft Exchange 2010 on Windows 2008 and would like to know what are the best backup options? We have used the Windows Server Backup that comes with the operating system but were hoping to use something that backs it up remotely.

We have looked at BackupAssist which looks like it might meet our needs, does anyone have experience of using this?

What ever product you are using. Make sure to take full backup every day. You can also use Full + Incremental option. But I would still prefer full backup everyday. Rest you can read here

If you have DAG, take passive db backup only for mailbox role.

Rest Hub/CAS doesn't require any backup.

you can use a 3rd party tool that depends on your RPO requirements, you might to recover only DBs and Mailboxes which could be done using the built-in windows backup and VSS backup add-on, you might want to recover specific emails or attachments which requires using some specific 3rd party software, I like BE and DPM
