ISSUE

Purpose

This article details the ability to select individual Exchange stores within a storage group for backup protection.

Description

Is it possible to select individual Exchange stores within a storage group for backup protection in the Unitrends backup system?

Cause

N/A

Resolution

Exchange 2010

Unitrends data protection for Exchange 2010 enables you to backup multiple databases or a single database. There are no storage groups in Exchange 2010, so of course there is no concept of storage group protection for Exchange 2010.

Exchange 2007/2003

Unitrends data protection for Exchange 2007 and 2003 enables you to backup multiple storage groups or an individual storage group.

Unitrends does not allow the selection for protection of individual databases within a storage group. The reason for this is the transaction logs for the entire storage group are backed up for each database selected. Thus a full backup must be run on every database in a storage group in order for the transaction logs to be properly handled for full/differential backups.
