We are cvurrently running a small Exchange Server 2007 (100 small mailboxes, < 1 GB total storage), hosted on a Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition, Service Pack 1. Currently, we are drawing on a tool developed by Michael Smith (The Essential Exchange), which is configured for manual execution (and DIY restore scripting).  We need to provide a daily (not more frequently) backup of the Exchange Server (i.e., all mailboxes plus whatever other content are likely to change daily).  In the event of a 'major wipeout', we would restore a bare metal backup and then restore the backed up Exchange files to bring Exchange current as of the latest backup. What products would you recommend we consider?  We are currently testing BackupAssist and struggling with security settings to give it 'proper' access to perform a backup.  We attempted to install Microsoft's tool, and the installation calls for us to reinstall Windows with different settings - a non-feasible suggestion at this point in time. Yes, we are doing this on a Test server! TIA! Steve Smith aka sngs87

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

We had good success using Symantec Netbackup for our Exchange server backups. One worth reviewing. We currently use Tivoli Storage Manager, but that is much more highly involved to set up, not a good choice to use solely for Exchange, but a very good backup system.

I’ve had good luck in the past using CommVault, but like Tivoli it is an overall solution not an Exchange specific solution.
