    I have written a simple program (only using dos bat files and a few third party tools).

    It can be used for brick level backup of exchange servers. I think it's reasonable unique.

    Wondering if I could make money from it? I'm wondering whether to try and sell it, or just publish and accept donations, or do something else?

    It's not quite ready for public display yet, but it uses exmerge to backup exchange and it backs up to amazon s3.

    It will schedule a full backup in segments and then upload a predefined amount per night and at the same time will do a daily backup and upload.

    I also have a tool for downloading and restoring a full information store when required.

    I just need to finish the user interaction which will enable the whole thing to be configured and installed and scheduled from the bat file interface.

    To be honest I was really looking for advise on how to sell/distribute rather than actually selling it on here...
