  • Exchange 2013 includes a plug-in for Windows Server Backup that enables you to make VSS-based backups of Exchange data. You can also use Windows Server Backup to back up and restore your Exchange databases. To back up and restore Exchange 2013, you must use an Exchange-aware application that supports the VSS writer for Exchange 2013, such as Windows Server Backup (with the VSS plug-in), Microsoft System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, or a third-party Exchange-aware VSS-based application. Be aware of these limitations when using VSS for backup and restore of Exchange data:

    • The VSS plug-in that ships with Exchange 2013 can be used to back up volumes containing active mailbox database copies or stand-alone (non-replicated) mailbox databases only. It can't be used to back up volumes containing passive mailbox database copies. To back up passive mailbox database copies, you need either Data Protection Manager or a third-party Exchange-aware VSS-based application.
    • Passive mailbox database copies are backed up using a separate VSS writer in the Microsoft Exchange Replication service. The Microsoft Exchange Replication service VSS writer doesn't support restores. Although you can back up a passive mailbox database copy using Data Protection Manager or a third-party Exchange-aware VSS-based application, you can't perform a VSS restore directly to a passive mailbox database copy. However, you can perform a VSS restore to an alternate location, suspend replication to the passive copy, and then copy the database and log files from the alternate location to the location of the passive database copy in the file system.
