This may seem like an insane thing to worry about to some people but it has me perplexed...


I utilize an on premise 690 with a full Exchange backup, as well as Message level backups. I also utilize Cloud Archive from Barracuda. The archive isn't going anywhere. Neither is the Exchange backup. In my opinion, the message level backup is an waste of space and overly redundant copy of the data. Has anyone else come across this? Did you keep all 3 or eliminate one?
