    Hi,
    Windows Backup was not "Exchange Aware" until SP2 for Exchange 2007 was released.
    You are running a version of Exchange that hasn't been supported since 10/12/2010, so what you need to do is to patch your server(s).

    Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 3

  • Can you tell us a bit more about your environment?  Do you have a cluster for your mailbox servers? (CCR/LCR) Or is it only one Exchange 2007 server?  If not, have you reviewed the Application/System log for any errors that occurred after the backup 'completed'?  

    JAUCG - Please remeber to mark replies as helpful if they were or as answered if I provided a solution.

  • Are you sure that you did a full backup?

    Can you post the backup log file?

    Best regards,
