Xopero software allows you to make a direct backup of a whole Exchange 2013 - 2016 database or selected mailboxes.
Xopero backup client has to be installed on the same system, where Microsoft Exchange resides.
To create a Microsoft Exchange backup set, you need to open Xopero and run the Backup set, wizard by clicking on New backup set button in My backup sets tab.
In the Backup set wizard mark Advanced copy and select Exchange 2007, 2010, 2013 from dropdown list. Don’t forget to define the backup set name.
To create a valid backup, Xopero service must have Microsoft Exchange's Windows user rights set for the time of creating backup.
Required rights can be added for the Xopero service in Backup Wizard, where on Advanced tab you can mark option Create backup using Windows user rights and enter Username and password.
When the required rights are set, go back to Basic information tab and click Initiate. As a result, Xopero will connect with the Exchange Server and list all available mailboxes.
You can select single mailboxes or the whole database to backup.
Backup of the single mailboxes creates PST files..
Backup of the whole Exchange database creates copy of all the database files, including logs.
