How to restore individual Public Folder data from a Granular Recovery Technology enabled backup of Exchange 2007 Information Store.


Solution




Note: Restore of individual Public Folder data from an Exchange 2007 Information Store GRT backup can only be done under the following conditions:

A. The Exchange 2007 Information Store was backed up directly to disk.
B.  The backup of Information Store on disk was duplicated to tape using the Backup Exec "duplicate backup" feature. Exchange 2007 GRT backup targeted directly to tapes will not allow restores of individual public folder data.

If a direct backup to disk backup set or duplicate backup to tape backup set is available, then the individual public folder data can be restored using the steps mentioned below.

1) Ensure that the Exchange backups are taken to disk using the Granular Restore Technology (GRT) and then duplicated to tapes.
2) Create a new restore job and expand the Public Folder database under the Information Store backup set (tape or disk) . Select the public folder items that need to be restored.
3) If Exchange redirect restore option is used then enter correct Server name and Public folder name where the data needs to be restored as shown in Figure 1 or else skip this step.

4) Then enter the correct path for temporary staging the database as shown in Figure 2.

5) Start the restore job. In case of a duplicate backup set on tape, the restore process will first stage the Public Folder database at the location provided in step 4.
6) After the staging is completed the selected resources should be restored to the required location.
