  • Exchange 2007 backup on Server 2008

    I've set up a test environment of Exchange 2007 on Server 2008 and am wondering about the best backup solution.
    Since Server 2008 will only do the volume level backups, do I have any inbuilt options, or is it third party (and cost) as the only solution (and if so, what experiences do members have?)

    Thanks in advance

    For the momment no exchange aware Back-up Sollutions are available in Windows Server 2008 RTM. However this is going to be changed:

    But for now you have to rely on third party back-up applications that are VSS aware.
