Hi guys. I just introduced Exchange 2010 into my existing Exchange 2003 organization. As I am finishing little odds and ends, I had a question about backing the DB's up before I start moving mailboxes to it.

I had always relied on Windows Backup under Exchange 2003 to backup my databases and it served me well for what it was. Now that Windows Backup has a plug-in for Exchange 2010, I had planned on continuing to use this tool.

Is there is a way to simply backup the information store like in the old version? All the documentation I've read suggests that I have to do a full backup of the entire volume rather than only getting the databases. To me, this is a big waste of space.

Should I just consider getting the Exchange Plug-in for my arcserve solution instead?
