The main function of CodeTwo Backup for Exchange is backup and disaster recovery. But apart from this, the application can also serve other purposes. Here are examples of scenarios in which CodeTwo Backup for Exchange will prove helpful:
- Continuous incremental Exchange mailbox backup
Continuous incremental Exchange mailbox backup is CodeTwo Backup for Exchange's main capability. The admin can set the application to perform cyclic automatic backup jobs that don't affect service availability and are completely invisible to end-users. Backup copies created in this fashion and kept off-site are a life saver in disaster scenarios.
The program's backup jobs have 3 customizable aspects: the scope of data which will be backed up, when the backups should be performed (non-stop or in selected time periods) and the location of the backup storage.
The backups are incremental. This means that after the first copy of the entire scope of selected mailbox data is created, further backup cycles save only changes and new items that fit within the pre-defined scope.
Thanks to a smart versioning mechanism, CodeTwo Backup for Exchange lets you browse versions of items, and restore them to the source or any other location. Recovery can be performed on various levels of granularity - from single items and attachments, to whole sets of mailboxes.
- Compliance with legislation related to record retention
