Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi Mahnaz,

It sounds like you are trying to do what is know as a ‘brick level backup’ of your mailboxes, something that isn’t really recommended in the Exchange community and by Microsoft because it doesn’t get everything in the Information Store. Your best bet is to select the Information Store in your backup software rather than the mailboxes themselves and setup retention policies for deleted items instead.

Here are some links regarding Exchange mailbox backups:

Good luck,

Steve
