I have an older 2008 R2 box running Exchange 2010 on it. Right now im using Windows Backup to backup the Exchange data but would like to know if im able to just backup the Exchange .edb file instead of the entire system? I really only care about the Exchange data on this server and want to make sure I can restore it one day, if needed.
I can't seem to find a solid answer for this question on the web. It looks like its fine to just backup the .edb as i've seen some granular restore programs that are only asking for the .edb file.
Can anyone give me a proper answer to this? Im thinking, worst case, I can spin up a new server and load that .edb, or something along those lines.
