    Hi everyone.

    I have a server with exchange 2003. Im trying to backup this server with backup exec 2012 to a remote network QNAP NAS share folder through backup-to-folder option. The backup is fine but i cannot managed to backup exchange with the GRT (Granular) Technology. I can only backup the entire database, so i can restore only the entire database. I cannot backup or restore mailbox by mailbox, or email by email. I know this is due to some limitation to the backupexec.

    My questions are:

    1. is there a way to resolve this
    2. if not, what alternative backup software might solve the problem

    Thank you for any response

    Good day :)


    Re: Backup exchange 2003 through backup folder

    Could you give us a clue what version of BackupExec you are using?

    Look at Backup Assist — Sembee (our guru) speaks very highly of it
    But also look at the many posts here about GRT being effectively useless!


    Re: Backup exchange 2003 through backup folder

    Is the Exchange server a virtual server? What error are you getting when you attempt the GRT job?
    Just for testing purposes does the GRT backup work if done on a local drive?

    Use the B2D test tool to see what could be going on.
    This should be located at C:Program FilesSymantecBackup Exec B2Dtest.exe.
    Save the B2DTest_32.exe (32 bit) or B2DTest_64.exe (64 bit), to any Backup Exec media server that has access to the target device and run it from a command prompt window
    The tool moves about 4GB of pseudo data back and forth from the device up to 4 times, so please be aware that it may take some time to complete and may impact the performance of a production environment.

    Please post the results.
