Hi All,

Quick Question.  We are running Exchange 2000.  My Boss and I disagree on a 
point.  He says he heard that if our Exchange Server would completely "bite the 
dust".... as in, be destroyed or maybe even just the Hard Drive go south... 
that we could recover by just bringing in another computer running Windows 2000 
Server and restoring all the appropriate files from our backups.  I say  we 
would have to build another Exchange Server by installing Exchange 2000 and 
then configuring it.  We then could recover our mailboxes etc. from the backup 

Who is correct?  
What files SHOULD I be backing up?
Are there existing articles on the best way to back up Exchange.
Should I be running some sort of "mirror" drive?
How are y'all handling "disaster recovery" for Exchange?

Thanks in advance,
Kelli Irwin
