No, it isn't.  Read the FAQ's.  Specifically, read the Ed Crowley Never
Restore method.  It is good advice for anyone and a sound practice as well.
Combining Deleted Items Retention with hiding mailboxes for a set period of
time will all but nullify the need to ever restore a mailbox.  I have been
with my company for over 2 years, and have not yet ever had to restore a
mailbox.  I keep a test server just in case, and I test restores every once
in a while, but that is it.

Subject: WG: Backup

You are right friends, I am doing a brick level backup. I also backup DS and
IS. The key in here is that I have *not* an adequate test machine for
recovering single mailboxes. So, correct me if I'm wrong or if I oversee
something relevant, brick level backup is the only way for me, isn't it?!
And, no unfortunately I won't get the bucks for a similar test machine ;-(((
Greetings
Steffen

Betreff: Backup


Hi there, 
I am having probs with the backup of my XCNG 5.5 Sp4 on NT4Sp6. I have a
priv.edb of approximately 23 GB size. Besides is only the OS and little more
(antivirus etc) on the machine. The machine itself is a P3 Xeon with 500 Mhz
and 512 MB RAM. It has an DLT 80 and uses backup software Veritas Backup
Exec Multiserver 7.3.
The problem: The backup of the Exchange Mailboxes lasts 12 hours, the whole
filesystem (27 GB) is being taped in half an hour. Why does take so long to
read out the mailboxes of the information store?
Anybody seen this or any idea?
Thx in advance
Steffen
