We were looking at starting to stop/start SQL/Exchange when doing backups. Has this worked well for everyone? Do we just setup a script to stop the desired services for say 5-10 minutes, and then start them back up?
ColdfirexVSS I trust. Acronis trying to use VSS (or more specifically their own snapshot technology) is what is not always reliable.
How do others schedule the start/stop of the services with the scheduling of the backups?
