Hi Experts,

We are looking for a new Backup solution and have found BackupAssist 6.
It can backup on tapes and is not very expensive but have a 2 GB PST size limitation ...
Our customers do not want to archive...
There is a solution to bypass that limitation but we need to install Outlook on the server.

I know that it is not recommended to install Outlook on a Exchange server, but it looks like that for Exchange 2010 there is some hope. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266418

Any advice would be welcome !

Thank you in advance for your help, best regards,

Just looking at Backup Assist's web site...you should be choosing Unicode rather than ANSI for pst files and then you do away with the 2GB limit and you don't need Outlook installed.
