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.

Do you mean exchange databases? or what is exact contents?

If they are files you can backup with any software that can use VSS and when you restore it shoulb be ok, but if you mean exchange databases files, it´s posible that these files could be corrupt or need a process to get back form backup.

If you want to backup exchanges databases, you can use old ntbackup software from a windows server 2003. Here are two links
