  • see, you can restore the whole mailbox database in RSG and recover certain mails for a user. You can not restore certain mails to directly any PST file, so you need to first restore it to any temporary mailbox and from there export to PST.

    Example: If you want to restore certain mail for John then temporary copy it to Sam's John Email folder like below...

    Restore-Mailbox -RSGMailbox 'John' -RSGDatabase 'RSG\Mailbox Database' -id 'Sam' -TargetFolder 'John Email'

    Below the awesome post by Exchange Team, Hope it will help you to understand he things better.

  • If you are just after a specific folder and its entire contents use:
    Restore-Mailbox -Identity PutUserNameHere -RSGDatabase MyRSGDatabase -IncludeFolders \Inbox\Folder1

    The other option would be to use a 3rd party product like Lucid8's DigiScope http://www.lucid8.com/product/digiscope.asp which will allow you to open any offline database with an intuitive Graphical User Interface so that you can Browse, Search, Export to PST & MSG formats or in your case recover/import data directly from the Offline Database into any Production Exchange Server, even cross version i.e. 2003 --> 2007 --> 2010.  To accomplish this you can do a simple Drag & Drop method or use one of the wizard processes
