    Hey guys,

    I'd like to have an include-exclude file for an Exchange server, such that I only backup *.edb and *.log, I'm a bit rusty on I/E. What's the shortest way to do this?

    By the way - can't be backed up when Exchange is running.

    That might work - except the backup will be no good and not usable. Because although it used VSS, the exchange database was not told to quiesce and get into a consistent state before the VSS shadowcopy was created.

    Thats what the exchange tdp+vss does. It tells exchange to quiesce, the VSS shadowcopy is taken, exchange is allowed to wake up again, and then you can backup a good copy from VSS. Which isn't what you are doing. You're backing up an inconsistent snapshot.
