I have a server running server 08 R2 with exchange server 2007 sp3 and i want to decrease the size of the backup to save some disk space.  I am wondering how i can do this so i can both decrease the size of the backup as well as keep my ability to restore the mail database.  What i am confused about is the selections i need in symantec backup exec 2010.  I am including two snips from the properties of the backup job the first is what the selections look like before the changes i am assuming i need the make the second is the selections after i made some changes.

In the the first graphic i am backing up the folder where the log files on the F: drive, the databases onthe G:, the system state and shadow copy components as well as everything under the Microsoft information store.

In the second all i am getting is the "microsoft information store".  Is this enough to do a restore?  Or do i need the files from F: and G: too?  Thanks experts.

Your second selection will backup Exchange database properly but you can further cut down by not backing up data needed for individual mailbox restores if it's just for DR purposses where you restore the whole thing rather than John Doe's mailbox.
