Backing Up Exchange 2007
Posted on 2014-01-27
I'm looking for a Band-Aid. Right now I have Exchange 2007 running on a Windows 2008 server. I will be moving off Exchange in the next 60 days to a hosted solution. Right now I'm using a backup solution that backs up to a San locally but the bandwidth between my primary data center and my backup data center is very poor. So I'm not getting any Exchange backups offsite. I'm looking to be able to get a backup to a removable drive possibly once a day to get something offsite. I remember before in Windows 2003 NTBackup would do Exchange but I don't believe Server 2008 can do that. My only thinking now is stopping the Services once a day and copying databases file manually but this would be a pain. I also don't want to buy some backup software or upgrade my Telco line since I'm moving off Exchange anyways.
