Storage Types for Exchange Recovery Database

To make Exchange recovery most efficient, we are recommending using either a fast USB external drive or SSD for keeping an Exchange Server copy, or some fast and secure cloud, such as Amazon S3. It is also a good idea to make a dedicated Exchange recovery server for the Server Network edition.

Review About Exchange Recovery Tool by Handy Backup

Review About Exchange Recovery Solution by Handy Backup

"We are using Handy Backup to govern all data backups on our servers, using one server per shop and a copy of the Small Business edition on each. Exchange recovery is a part of a server security, as our mailboxes are somehow prone for irregular viral attacks and ransomware. It is simple to make complete Exchange 2013 server recovery with Handy Backup, using only 15-20 minutes to restore a clean version, and then have no more problems!"

Ranchadal Cinarwati, a CEO of "The Myanmar Grocery Group"

Utilizing Handy Backup as Exchange Mailbox Recovery Software

This is a sample task allowing Exchange 2016 restore deleted mailbox. You can use it for any version of Exchange instead, e.g., for automating Exchange 2013 restore database from backup.

Preparing Exchange Recovery Software

The current version allows only returning a content of Exchange recovery server copy to its original place. Before executing an Exchange Server disaster recovery plan, please make all necessary operations to prepare a server for accepting recovered data. (This is not a part of Handy Backup software).

Preparing Exchange Recovery Software
  1. Open an administrative panel of MS Windows Server and find an Exchange settings group.
  2. Expand all databases for Exchange recovery and set up options for unmounting and overriding these databases.

Note: When you run restoration, a task will stops Exchange Store Service and all Windows services that depend on it. Then it transfer an Exchange recovery mailbox to its original location by using the VSS Windows service, and, finally, re-launch all stopped services.

How to Restore Exchange Mailbox with Handy Backup

  1. Open Handy Backup and create a new task. Select recovery on Step 1.
  2. Click "Next" and go to Step 2. Here, open a USB drive with Exchange backup content.
  3. Find a backup folder with an Exchange copy, and select a file backup.hbi here. Click "Next".
Creating a Configuration for Exchange Recovery Software

Note: For encrypted backups, here will appear an extra step, where you can only enter a password for encryption and click "Next" to continue.

  1. Skip Step 3, as you can only place an Exchange recovery mailbox to its original location.
  2. On Step 4, select either full recovery or incremental restore (which will recover only those Exchange components that contain some changes since previous restoration).
  3. On the final Step 5, give a name for your task, e.g. "Exchange 2016 Restore Mailbox".

Well done! The task will work every time when you start it. Now you see how to restore Exchange mailbox with Handy Backup — this is easy and convenient.
