One of our clients has lost his outlook calendar data (bad hotsync with palm). They do have a backup of the outlook information store from the previous day on a backup tape. Any tips on how to restore just that one person's calendar from the backup tape (without restoring any other information for him or anyone else).

Thank you

Unless you backup the information on brick level (mailbox), otherwise, you will need to reinstall the whole thing.

Is that exchange they are using?

Restore the PST file to a secondary location. Open the pst on the same computer as the client. (You will have 2 PSTs open, so it might be a good idea to rename the 'folder' of the original so it is differentiable. --RClick-Properties-Advanced-type in a new name) Then Right click on the calendar folder and choose "Copy calendar..." Choose the client's pst (or possibly a sub-folder in case any new items have been added that might be overwritten.) The close the backup pst (R-Click-Close). This should restore the data.
