Exchange GRT restore stuck on Staging and consumes a lot of memory
Please, I need a very quick response if you can:
I'm trying to restore a few email messages from an Exchange GRT backup on tape.
I manage to select the items I want to restore and there's enough space on the disk to stage the entire store.
At some point I see the bytes count stop and the job gets stuck on 'staging', and at the same time the beremote.exe process starts to consumes more and more memory. It's now already at 2.4GB and rising.
I can't even cancel the job, nothing happens...
I also tried to duplicate the backupset to disk. the duplication was successful but when I try to drill down the database in the restore selection list, it just hangs and again the beremote.exe memory starts to rise. Yesterday it got up to 15GB until I had to restart the service.
What can I do? I can't restart the service everytime because I have other jobs running at the same time.
How can I free the memory without restarting the service?
