What should I back up?

Applies To: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard

You should back up the system drive (typically, drive C). You should also back up any drives that store business information such as:

  • Exchange Server data

  • Microsoft SharePoint Foundation data

  • SQL Server databases that support your line-of-business applications

  • Redirected user's My Documents folders

  • User's shared data folders

You can only back up data from a local drive that is formatted as an NTFS file system. Drives formatted as FAT (including FAT32) file systems do not appear in the list of drives to back up.
