0 bytes when Restoring mailbox from Exchange GRT Differential Backup Job

Created: 24 Oct 2012 | 5 comments

Hi,

 

I am doing my backups of Exchange 2003 with GRT directly on tapes.

When i tried to restore a indivitual item (coz of GRT), it does not shows ant option to select any mailbox or items.

Its shows 0 bytes.

Now how can i restore my mailbox from a differential backup tape.

Incremental or Differential GRT backup of Exchange databases is supported only on Backup to Disk and not on tape.

Hi,

 

Have you been backing up with Advanced Open File Option turned on? If so, turn it off, try a backup again, and then check to see if you can restore.

You can also consider duplicating the Information Store to disk first, and then restoring from there.

Thanks!

AOFO is Off.

I can restore single mailbox from the full backup (from Tapes), but not from differential (restore to PST).

Have you tried to stage this to disk before doing the restore-to-pst?
