MS Exchange backup

The minimal backup unit for MS Exchange is a database.

For MS Exchange, database files and logs are backed up. If the backup session completes successfully, the logs on the Exchange server are truncated.


  • Exchange Database Availability Groups (DAGs) and replica databases are not supported
  • Server configuration is not backed up

Preparing the system for backup

Before you start backing up MS Exchange, please make sure your system is properly configured (this is done just once unless the settings get reset in the future).
