Hello Karan,

    If the backups are taken on tapes then first it will stage the Database to a temporary disk location (C:\TEMP by default) and then restore the selected Mailbox.

It will not cause any issues to other database or the same database. You Exchange should be running fine even during the restore.

If the emails were from Inbox then it will go to Inbox... same way if from Sent messages then will go to Sent messages.

It will be restored from the contianer it was backed up.
