BESR 8.5.3 no public folders in granular restore option with Exchange 2007

We are running into trouble with restoring  Exchange 2007 public folders from BESR 8.5.3 restore points.
We can easily mount mailbox databases (First Storage Group) and choose mailboxes, recover messages etc... 
If we choose the seccond storage group (public folders database) GRO try to mount the volume and never ends.
If we have the public folders within the First Storage Group, it mounts the sv2i correctly, but we are only presented with the mailbox database. We have no choice regarding public folders !

Is there a special way to backup Exchange 2007 in BESR 8.5.x to have public folders included and restorable in the restore points ?
Am I missing something ?

Thanx for your help..

It's not possible to use GRO to recover public folders I'm afraid.

Thanx for your message. I was sure it was possible  since BE 12 GTR can do this.
Can we hope this feature to be supported in future releases, or public folders are completely discountinued/unsupported in BESR ?

thanx anyway

Yes, I believe that this functionality will be added in a future version of BESR GRO.
