  • Is there anything natively with Exchange 2013 in terms of improvements with backup / restore ?

  • Hi ITForum2013,

    from the Exchange perspective backup and restore is Dumpster. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee364755(v=exchg.150).aspx and, if applicable, you can run your Exchange Servers backupless. So more "speed" is the same improvement on IOps as for the EDB.

    This is for availability of you mailbox data.

    So you need to define a little more your goals of backup and recovery, while on the other hand there is no more backup "tool" outside of dumpster as you never need it from an Exchange Servers view.  ntbackup is old style. :)

    Regards,
    Martin

  • Thanks Martin.  Would Dumpster in Exchange 2013 cover the scenario where a user deletes a folder containing 100s of messages.  Could dumpster be used to recover the folder and the messages contained within ?

  • Hi ITForum2013,

    please see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee364755(v=exchg.150).aspx .

    Recoverable items can be used to restore your 100 deleted items.

    On the other Hand, as the recoverable item is not based on your mailbox folders structure , you cannot restore that Folder from that "a n unknown item in my former Folder "Itemovedthatfolder".

    Regards,
    Martin
