I can't get NT Backup to work with Exchange server.

I get the error:
SBS1\Microsoft Information Store\First Storage Group is not a valid drive, or you do not have access.

The Exchange database lives on the D: drive and SBS lives on the C: drive.

When I write the regime if I manually select the data store by tunneling through the driectories to the database location it will backup OK, just not when I use the backup wizard to select the data store.

I am writing an Incremental routine.

I am backing up to a Powervault NAS. My other backup regimes work fine to the same location with the same credentials, System state, User Profiles....

Any help appreciated

Does the account you use to backup with have full exchange admin rights?

I got bad advice from Microsoft phone support. I was told that an incremental backup would, on its first run, create a full backup, and then on subsequent runs append an incremental backup to the original.

WRONG !

According to Microsoft Article ID 255530: "The backup type is set to incremental or differential and the database has never had a full backup".

I was unable to find this article through any search related to the NT backup errors, but did find it by searching a related error in the event log, an ESE 206 error.

I am still unclear how to set up an incremental backup. There is a dearth of information on configuration. For incremental I am assuming I shoud write a regime that creates a normal backup say once per week. I would then write another regime that saves to the same file name, but is an incremental backup and runs daily. Does this sound right?

If anyone could point me to a book or comprehensive articel on NT backup I would be grateful.
