backup type "copy"

I am backing up my Exchange 2003 server daily using the "full" backup
type.   I am backing this up to tape.   As another layer of protection,
I was thinking about creating a backup job that was the "copy" backup
type so I could backup exchange to another server or network attached
storage.   This wouldn't interfere with my current backup strategy, and
it would give me another copy of the database stored somewhere.  In the
scenario where I need to restore from tape, and the tape was bad, I
could then turn to this "copy".   What caveats do I need to be aware of
if I needed to restore from a "copy" backup?

Sounds pretty damn pointless as a recovery solution.

Since you have E2K3 you can make use of the Recovery Storage Group and
restore your full backup of the Mailbox Store into it. That will give
you the confidence that the backup file/tape itself is ok so that you
can say "OK, if I need to restore the tape I can assume the PFs can be
restored from it as well."

Copy Paste turns numeric string into Scientific Notation

Some data is a part numbers that are a long "string" of numbers some with trailing zero's that are interpreted as scientific notation. (they need retained in text format.) If I preformat the spreadsheet as text, it pastes fine, but autosum does not recognize other numeric columns for summing. If I paste, and then reformat only the offending part number column as text, the scientific notation rows do not change unless I actually en...

GP 10 and SQL 2005, copying from one server to another

Is it possible to copy contacts AND contact activity to a public folder
When a Outlook user is connected to Exchange for the first time, is it possible to move a local contact to a public folder and keep the already present activity information. Thanks in advance Bo A simple workaround is to move the contacts to the public folder (which will move them OUT of the mailbox folder), and then move them back again to the mailbox folder (which will keep them IN the public folder). So at that point you should have the contacts listed in both places. Try it out and see! -- Please do not send e-mail directly to this alias. This alias is for newsgroup purposes only...
