Tried Backup of Exchange Server 2007 sp2 on Windows Server 2008 with 'Windows Server Backup' but user wants to specify exact contents which is not possible.
Since I have a backup software can I simply copy the concerned files (via Volume Shadow) ? Will it restore correctly if need be arises to copy back.
