Need to re-install Exchange server - 31.Jan.2007 11:07:28 PM

I currently have an exchange 2003 server on Windows Small Business Server but it is having lots of problems. Services are continuosly dying and have to re-start the server. I'm thinking on re-installing the server from scratch but I'd like to be able to keep the user accounts, mail boxes , calendar and address books.
I don't want to just backup the whole server and then restore it since I'm assuming the installation is already corrupted and so re-storing the whole backup will once againa cause the problems. So is there a way I can just back up the data I need and restore it on a fresh installation?

Thanks

We can take 2 types of Backups, Exchange User mail boxes and exchange Storage Database.

Exchange user mail box backup can be taken by Exmerge utility and create the PST of each user account and after fresh installation we can restore the PST backup to user mail box.

Exchange Storage Database backup is through system state backup we can taken the exchange store backup (Database NTDS.DIT).
