Restoring a mailbox backup with another name (another user) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Exchange 2007.

    How can I restore a mailbox backup with another user/name ?

    I use BackupExec to backup filegroup and I am able to restore mailbox overwriting the old one ... but I MUST leave untouched the original.

    Basically, I would like to browse the restored mail. How can I do this ?

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    I think you should use recovery storage group.

    I hope this will help you.

  • Also note that in addition to the Recovery Storage Group, BE supports Granular Restore backups and restores. This is something you would have to ask them about.

  • Hi Ali,

    I used in the past RSG but I don't remember if I can merge backup mailbox on a user different than backup.

    Do you know this ?

    Thanks.
