This is a simple script to back up your Lync 2013 or Skype for Business (SfB) Standard or Enterprise Edition Server to a single zip.file. It does not only make a copy of your topology, but will make a backup of your IIS files, your SQL server databases and much more.

This is really a continuation of the backup-lync2013 script, but has been modified for SfB.

The current version is now 4.3 - June 2019
