How to set up backups on Windows Small Business Server 2003?
Posted on 2013-06-10
I need to set up a Windows Small Business Server 2003 SP2 to run a full backup every Friday (with verification) and to do daily incremental backups. The server I need to backup also is running Exchange - and that should be backed up as well.
Whiel I thought that doing a full server backup would include the Exchange stores (how is it a FULL server backup if anything is excluded?), some people have said that the full backup does not include Exchange stores by default.
But, I have failed to find a simple a simple how-to that will tell me, in detail, how to set the server up to do a full backup (the kind you need if a server crashes) every Friday night (mainly Friday because the only FULL backups that I got to run took over 18 hours to backup 285GB to an external USB 2.0 HDD) and how to set up incremental backups that would run Monday through Thursday.
Anybody got a link to some videos or great, SIMPLE, tutorials on getting this done right?
