  No all you really need to backup are the log files themselves.

    Thanks,

    Would that be the whole of MDBDATA directory ? if i did copy these over to 
another location every hour would there be an issue with file locking and 
multiple access ?

    Regards,

    Michael

      Rather than backing up the whole message store all you should need to 
backup would be the Log files (assuming that you are getting a valid online 
backup every night and clearing the logs (so no recursive logging).   Then if 
you have a critical failure and lose the server, you should be able to restore 
the server from the arcserve tape, restore the logs from the IDE drive, and be 
right back to where your were.

        Hi all,

        Just a query about backing up exchange mailboxes, I currently have a =
        batch file running every hour on a Exchange 2000 server which is also 
my =
        DC backing up all users folders - documents ect..

        I would also like to backup all users mailboxes every hour but i am not 
=
        sure which way to go about it. The reason why is because our current =
        server's service agreement is on a return to base basis. So if 
something =
        goes wrong we are without a server! - not my doing.

        So, I have installed a IDE drive along with the RAID array so that 
these =
        hourly backups will be on my IDE which i will pull out and put in =
        another machine if i lose the server.

        I could backup the mailbox store, but without an exchange server it =
        wouldnt be very usefull , Or i could backup the entire MBX directory =
        from the M: drive but this can timely.

        Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

        Note: We do a full tape backup everynight with ARCserv with exchange =
        backup agent.

        Regards,

        Michael
