The simplest way to understand the granular restore functionality is to go through a simple step-by-step description of the way this works in each case. The primary differences to take note of are the differences between the backup-to-disk method and the backup-to-tape method.

Backup to Disk of an Exchange Information Store database with GRT enabled goes through the following steps:

1. GRT backup requests backup data from Exchange server
2. BE Media Server Creates IMG folders in B2d location
3. Data is sent from Exchange server to BE Media Server (unless local)
4. Media Server also requests current ESE.dll version from Exchange Server and writes this to the IMG folder
5. Finally, a test is run against the database using the VFF (virtual file filter EDBProv.dll)
6. The VFF uses ESE.dll to read the Exchange database to make sure it is consistent and that we can recover data from it
7. Backup reports...

Attached is a whitepaper on how hardware encryption is done for LTO4 tapes.  Hardware encryption is part of the specs for LTO4 tapes.  Thus it is not available for LTO3 tapes although LTO4 tape drives can write to LTO3 tapes.

The part that I find particularly interesting is how an encrypted LTO4 is protected against low level copying.

i had a fine working Exchange GRT Backup to Disk. Everything worked even single mail restore.
Now imagine what happened during the copy to tape ?

Yes, "Access Denied"
or more detailed:
V-79-57344-33928 - Access is denied.
Access denied to directory .
V-79-57344-766 - Cannot log on to MAPI with the specified credentials. Review the resource credentials for the job, and then run the job again.

Exchange 2007 is on W2KR2 installed.
Media Server BE2010 is on W2K8R2 installed.

Solution was to implement the ipv6 workaround mentioned in
