Exchange 2010 backup consistency check

Jump to solution

Hello, HP.

The question is on DP Ex2010 consistency check.

Quote from doc:

If this option is selected, Microsoft Exchange Server checks the
consistency of a database's backup data. If this option is not selected,
Perform consistency check
The check is performed on the backup media after the backup data is
created. If the data is found corrupt, it is discarded and the database
backup fails.
If the Check log files only option is selected, only the backup data of
the log files is checked, which is enough for Microsoft Exchange Server
to guarantee data consistency.

 

Does DP really checks data already written to media, e.g. slow tape drive? Or before backuping, on the disk where bases are?

Is this check very important?

Why checking only logs is enough?

thanks
