Note:-
Why do we take the backup of Exchange Server in different modes like as my article part-I and article part-II?
Its depend on your need. As the article part-I backup you can restore the whole backup of Exchange Server and you dont have the chance to restore single or particular mail accounts but if you wish to restore a single mail account or multiple mail accounts so you have a choice that you can do it if you have the Microsoft Exchange MailBoxes backup
