  • Question

    size recovery base starts to grow uncontrollably and threatens to spend all my disk space,
    though mailbox size is not large. (Disk space 2TB, DPM 2012 R2 - Microsoft Server 2012 R2, Exchange 2013 - Microsoft Server 2012 R2)
    Are you in recovery restores the entire database in recovery database and then individual mailbox

  • Hi,

    The entire database is restored to the recovery storage group, then you need to restore the individual users mailbox using exchange powershell commands.

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately not, that is the only method supported by Exchange, so you will need to add more disk storage for recovery.

  • Thanks Mike,Is it possible some how return only a individual mailboxwithout returning entire database? The whole database is a huge, so we do not have enough space to get her back the whole.

  • Hi,

    Although not supported by Microsoft exchange group - there is a 3rd party DPM plug in that may do what you are wanting.  See this web site.
