Did you check this Technote:

And maybe another strange question, but you are sure the disk(s) of the exchange server are not full ?

Thanks for replying,

my backup is not snapshot backup it is GRT backup, Do you mean that backup exec dose not support recovery group restore at all? or it dosen't support  it, if it is snapshot full as shown in tech note.

Okay, then you should able to restore it.

What you also can try is to modify the following registry key:


name = "ignore mount state"

value = DWORD(1)

When doing GRT restores, the default location for the temporary location of the FULL Information Store is C:\Temp. So first thing would be to check and see if there is enough free space on your C:\ to host the Information Store.

if not, you can change this to a drive with enough disk space by clicking: Tools --> Options --> Microsoft Exchange.

It has got resolved by installing the SP5 & as you have mentioned, I gave different path instead of C:\Temp

Thank you to all of you for helping me to resolve this & sorry that I haven't updated for long time.
