I know replicas are not the same as backups, but my situation is this:
I have a vm running exchange that failed to complete its full backup this weekend, it retried it tonight and was at 31% when forcibly stopped it. I've disabled the job now because I can't have it run a full backup during the week as there is too much going on with other jobs and it takes 16hrs, I don't want it running during the day. Now I have replicas of this exchange server running every hour, so I should be relatively protected with those, correct? I realize in a worse cases scenario, some exchange silent database corruption happens and replicates to the replicas and I'd have to go back to the oldest database backup which was an incremental from Thursday last week. But otherwise I should be ok until Friday when I can run a full exchange backup. Is there something else I can do until then to protect this exchange server via backups? Create a new always incremental job until Friday?
