1) Use NT Backup -- it's exchange aware after you install exchange.
2) Create a recovery server that's identical to your production box, just not on
the network
3) Restore.  Lather, rinse, repeat.

Alright, so what is the good backup solution for the Exchange databases?

We have not performed test restores to date.  We like to make sure
everything goes to hell if the server crashes - okay, well not really.  Do
you have any recommendations for restore procedures (testing purposes?).

Thanks,

Robert
