    I am currently using the backup program that comes with Windows 2000 Server When I back up the exchange server I get the following report-

    Warning: Portions of “\Mailbox Store (Server name) cannot be read. The backup data is corrupted or incomplete. This file will not restore correctly.

    Everything seems to be working fine. Has anyone else received this message, and if so, what did you do about it?

    Thanks in advance, this looks like a great forum.

    The reason for the error is because the mail store is a database and is always in use and thus the file is always open. Most native backups cannot backup open or in use files. YOu might want to check that your backup utility has the proper permissions to backup maibox resources.

    I've been backing up the same mail store for several months without error. This problem just started about 2 weeks ago, and I didn't make any other changes to the Exchange Server. I will try a fresh backup, see if that helps anything. Thanks for your suggestion.
