With the Exchange agent you can backup the Information Store while live, do a restore while live, and have GRT-based backups restores.

Load the agent, and create a selection list containing the System State and Information Store. I suppose you could include the Exchange installation directory, but BE will automatically exclude the *.edb, *.stm etc. files by default.

Check the best practices link below, and if you need further information, the Admin Guide is pretty decent:
