Restoring individual Exchange public folder messages from tape by duplicating backup sets to disk

To restore individual public folder messages from tape, you must first duplicate the backup sets that contain the messages to a backup-to-disk folder. You can then restore the data from that folder.

The backup that you want to restore from must be enabled for Granular Recovery Technology (GRT), and must be a full backup or a copy backup. If there is an incremental or differential backup that is subsequent to the full backup, then you can restore individual items from the incremental or differential backup. The backup sets for the full backup and the incremental or differential backup must be on the same volume.

You cannot restore individual public folder messages from tape if the original backup is an incremental backup.

Note: Restoring individual Exchange public folder messages by using GRT is not the same as restoring an older version of a public folder database. Individual Exchange public folder messages that you restore are not overwritten when replication occurs.

  7. In the Device list box, select a backup-to-disk folder.

  8. Click Run Now.

  9. After the job completes, run a restore job to restore the individual public folder messages from the Exchange backup sets that are duplicated in the backup-to-disk folder.
