Changing the Preselected Backup Type

Applies to: Exchange 2007 or later, and IntelliSnap

By default, the preselected backup type is incremental. However, you can change the preselected backup type.

After you change the preselected backup type, a full backup runs automatically before the new preselected backup type runs.

Note: If a preselected job fails or is killed during the Archive Index phase, the next job will convert to a full backup.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client.
  2. Right-click Exchange Database, and then click Properties.

    The Exchange Database Properties dialog box appears.

  3. In the Backup Type area, select the appropriate backup type.
    • Incremental: Transaction logs are truncated by the Exchange server.
    • Differential: Transaction logs are not truncated.
  4. Click OK.

    The next backup that runs will be a full backup.
