About the Quick Recovery Configuration Wizard

The Quick Recovery Configuration Wizard enables you to schedule all phases of snapshot creation and maintenance:

The wizard enables you to set up and schedule multiple snapshot sets for one or more Exchange components. For Microsoft Exchange 2010, Exchange components are defined as databases.

You can set up different schedules for each snapshot set. You can schedule when to prepare the snapshot mirrors, when to create the initial snapshot sets, and when to refresh the snapshot sets, enabling you to establish a schedule that best suits your site. The scheduling capability automates the process of refreshing the snapshot sets. At the scheduled time, the snapshot volumes are automatically reattached, resynchronized, and then split again.

The snapshot creation process integrates with VSS to quiesce the databases and then simultaneously snapshot the volumes. The snapshot is done while the databases are online and without disrupting the email flow.
