Hi,
what's the best way to backup exchange server in case if it required to restore.
OS: SBS 2008, Exchange 2007

Can windows built-in backup tool use to backup and restore exchange?


Thanks

Yes, the backup created by the SBS backup wizard includes exchange. As always, you should regularly test your disaster recovery plan.

thanks cgaliher- in restore process SBS server recovery wizard gives following selections:

- files and folder
- volumes
- applications (grayed out, need to register with windows serverbackup)
- System state

Any of these selection gives exchange restore? currently whole system and data drives is backed up on USB drive.

Thanks

This should answer all of your questions. Note that this is all set up by the SBS wizards. If you set anything up manually, it may not be set up properly and therefore you may have unexpected issues.
