We’ve just launched the latest version of BackupAssist – version 7.3.1. It has a great new feature that makes restoring mail items from a Hyper-V guest using Exchange Granular Restore easier than ever before.
Also in v7.3.1 are a few tweaks making the backup options clearer, and the restore process more informative.
Granular Restore of Exchange mail items from Hyper-V guests
When performing a restore using the Exchange Granular Restore Console, BackupAssist will now display the Exchange (EDB) backup available for each Hyper-V guest.
You no longer have to use the Hyper-V Granular Restore Console to mount the Hyper-V backup for EGR. The backup will be displayed in the Restore Home page, the same as other backups.
While the Hyper-V process is handled by BackupAssist, you will still need both the Hyper-V Granular Restore Add-on and Exchange Granular Restore Add-on.
To enable this new feature, just add Exchange authentication information to the Exchange VM Detection tab when you create a backup job. The Exchange VM Detection tab will appear in the Selections screen when the Hyper-V role is installed and running on the server.
If you have a v7 license or valid Upgrade Protection, you can upgrade to BackupAssist v7.3.1 for free.
