Hi Guys
Im after recommendations for backup software for SBS2011

 

Need Granular Email recovery :Something that can (easily) restore individual deleted emails (asking too much?) , or at least restore single users mailbox's (even if restored to a temp user)
And of course backup to either NAS or USB HD.
Bare Metal restore to dissimilar hardware would be a bonus

 

Veeam , Shadow Protect, Backupassist , or something else ?

Shadowprotect, you're welcome. 

 

SP Has an option for granular restore.

You are probably aware that SBS2011 is a product you should be looking at retiring in the foreseeable future.

Looks like that is now a separate product , rather than built in ?

Yes. It's relatively inexpensive for the functionality.

AFAIK its always been a separate product and in my experience isn't the greatest if im being honest.. but can vouch for the SP being a terrific backup product. 

 

For mail recovery, Is a mail achiever product such as GFI MailArchiver an option for you?

A full backup product is needed. Need to be able to recover the whole server , and recover individual email folders
Could get emails back via a Bare metal restore to a spare server , but thats hardly a good option (that process just takes too long)

 

At the moment , only data is being backed up . Better than nothing but hardly ideal.

You wouldn't need to restore the whole server to another VM to restore just email folders, even without Granular Restore I so not believe.
