You can use windows backup locally,  Here are step by step how to create the backup
To back up an Exchange computer: 1.Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup.
2.Click the Backup tab.
3.Expand the Microsoft Exchange Server branch in the left pane, and then expand the server branch you want. To expand a branch, double-click the branch or click the plus sign (+) to the left of the branch.
4.Select the objects that you want to back up. To select an object, click to select the check box to the left of the object. For example, to select a particular storage group, expand the Microsoft Information Store branch, and then select the storage group that you want to back up.

5.Type the full path and file name of the backup file in the Backup media or file name box, and then click Start Backup. You can also click Browse to locate an existing backup file or specify a new backup file instead of typing the full path and file name manually.
6.Specify the settings for this backup operation, and then click Start Backup. You can view additional settings by clicking Schedule or Advanced.

Another option would be to download Backup Assist and use their free trial period to backup the Exchange server.
