Windows Server 2003 backup utility and First Storage Gr... - 8.Dec.2004 12:23:00 PM

I am running Windows 2003 and Exchange Server 2003. I am using the ntback utility in windows to backup exchange following the path Microsoft Exchange Server/ServerName/Microsoft Information Store/First Storage Group/Mailbox Store. However when I use the restore utility to look at what's on the backup tapes, and follow the same path, I just get the message 'No entries found' when I check the mailbox store. Now I'm worried that my mailboxes aren't being backed up!
If I go to Exchange System Manager and follow the same path I can see all my users mailboxes - so why aren't they showing up on the tapes and how can I make sure they are being backed up?
Many thanks for any suggestions.

Hi,

NTbackup backs up the complete information store and you won't be able to see (or restore) single mailboxes from this backup.

If you want to make sure that the backup is valid you can create a recovery storage group and restore the database to this storage group (if you have enough disk space on the server)
