I have Exchange 2019 installed on Windows Core 2019. I would like to know what the best practice is for backing up the server? I'm looking for a disaster recovery solution and not a granular restore. I'm currently using wbadmin and still learning how to use it.

I tried this: wbadmin enable backup -addtarget:e: -allcritical -VSSfull -schedule:21:00 -quite
and it ran ok the first night but when I put the next disk in the following day, it didn't run. Although it wasn't a newly formatted disk...
So basically I have these questions:

1.) How to I run wbadmin using multiple disks on a schedule? (using 5 disks M-F)
2.) Is there a 3rd party software that is superior for what I'm wanting to achieve?
3.) Can you install 3rd Party Backup Software on Core 2019? (My first time using Core)

Also if your answering question #1 please don't past a link to MS Web Docs on wbadmin. I have already scoured those pages and unless you can find a specific page that explains what I'm doing wrong with scheduling the backup then I have already covered that text. Not trying to be snarky just trying to not to waist your time.
