1. Configuring an exchange mailboxes backup

Feature available in Uranium Backup Pro DB and Gold editions.

Note: Uranium can perform mailbox backups of Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1 and higher.

Microsoft Exchange mailboxes backup is an important feature we introduced since Uranium Backup 8.8.0. It allows to granularly back up specific Exchange mailboxes that can be restored directly on the Outlook clients or from the Exchange server.

Uranium Backup must be installed on the Exchange server machine.

The first step is to create a new backup set:

Then click on Click here to add an Exchange Mailbox backup:

Then select the primary destination folder. Note that the folder has to be accessible by the user “Exchange Trusted Subsystem”. You can also specify other common destinations:

Press ok and you’ll be ready to perform your first Exchange backup with Uranium.
