imageBeginning at the end of April the C:\ – drive of my Exchange 2010 Server (with the latest SP + CU updates installed ) was filled with large files in the WINDIR\temp directory and the mailflow stopped because there wasn’t enough free space left. All these large files started with “nsebin.def.xxxx.tmp and had a size of 300 MB each.

There are at least two reasons, why a regular backup of your Exchange 2010 (Mailbox) Databases is important:


  -  1. the associated log files of a database are truncated after a successful backup

  -  2. you have to be ready for a disaster (and to be able to restore your db’s)

In this post I will show you, how you can use the Server 2008 R2 built in Backup tool to create such a backup  (you need R2!) depending on VSS where the log files are truncated!

After starting a "mass Move Request" from the EMC or by a PowerShell Script, it's important that you are up to date about it's progress. The EMC (picture on the left) gives you the basic information, but if you need more details you have to run 2 PowerShell cmdlets from the EMS.

On an Outlook "fat client" or on a mobile device (e.g. iPhone)  the Exchange Autodiscover functionality makes it possible to enter the users e-mail address, the domain\username and the password and the profile / connection settings will be configured for you.
