    SBS 2003 NTbackup

    I noticed that it backs up priv1.edb and pub1.edb and then the
    Information Store. Do I need the priv1 and pub1 included?

    I prefer to keep all backups of Exchange...

    Backups on Windows Small Business Server 2003 may use more backup media
    space than expected
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840754
    -------------------------------------------
    The SBS Backup Configuration Wizard configures an online backup of the
    information store and a file system backup of the MDBDATA folder because
    both types of backup procedures are useful for different disaster recovery
    scenarios. The MDBDATA folder backups are most useful for recovery if you
    must rebuild the server. For example, use this backup if you must replace or
    reformat the primary hard disk of the server because of a disk failure or
    because of a controller failure. The online backups of the information store
    are most useful for recovery when only the information store is damaged. For
    example, use the information store backup if the Exchange databases become
    inconsistent because of an unexpected shutdown, but the operating system is
    not damaged.

    The online backups verify database consistency and remove log files that the
    information store is no longer using. If you do not run the online backups,
    the information store continues to generate new log files until you exhaust
    the free space on the volume that contains the log files.
