I've got two questions about backing up Exchange 2010 with Microsoft Server Backup.
In it they say, Install Server Backup feature. Ok, done. Then start a Backup Once .. ok .. starting that...
Then it says .. recommended to do a FULL backup.
So, my question is this:-
doing a full backup will backup, like everything on that drive. System files, other files .. the works, right?
What happens if i just want to backup the Exchange email? how can i do that?
Secondly, If i do a full back, will it format my destination drive? For me, i have a 500Gig secondary storage drive in that unit. I have data on that drive. If i do a full backup, will it zap the existing data BEFORE it backups the current?
Last (and this is the weird bit). my C/System drive has around 40Gig being used. 35 odd is free. All my programs/exchange data is on that (note: please avoid replies about bad practice, etc). When i see the option for a FULL backup, it says it will take 112G of space. What the? that's like .. 3x the size of my used data on C drive right now... is that right?
