Backup Exchange 2003 Mailboxes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

we've got a Retrospect Multi Server Version 7.6.123

Drivers-Update and Hot-Fix Version 7.6.2.101.

 

Is it normal, that a inkrementel backup of 88 MS Exchange Mailboxes needs 7 hours? :blush:

 

Thats the only backup we do with retrospect!

 

Thanks

Regards Tim

Mailbox backup can be slow. The more messages in the mailbox, the longer it will take. Backup of the exchange database should be much faster.

Storage Group contains all of the mailboxes and has to be restored in one chunk, replacing the storage group. Mailbox backup contains individual mailboxes and individual mail can be restored.

does it make any sense to backup both? Or is it preferential to do one over the other. If I have to restore anything, I would expect it would for a single user that deleted an e-mail they did not want to and was extremely important, though I have not had to restore anything for exchange over the 9 years that I have been here. (knock on wood) :content:

Just wait until you have litigation discovery papers served on you. Make sure you have a document retention policy in place, and that it's followed.
