ArcServe pruning - need to restore a public folder from Brick Level backup

I need to restore a public folder from one of our monthly backup tapes where the session has already been pruned.  I was able to merge the session for the system state and the registry, but I do not have an option to merge the brick level so that I can drill down to the public folder I need to restore from that month.  All I have for "Session 0003 : \\Server\dbaxchg2" is this:

Media Name   EOM3
Random ID    C45B
Source Path   dbaxchg2
Session Type   Backup Agent
Session Method    database
Session Flags    Pruned, Catalog, No Detail

It's a bit messy, but you could restore the ARCSERVE db (ASDB) onto another machine & temporarily connect arcserve to the restored copy (Assuming of course that you have a backup of it that's old enough) - that way you should be able to find the brick level job you're after by using the "retore by session" pages. Once you're done, just switch the database back to the right one & you're away again.

To change the location of the ARCServe db - just run setupsql.exe from the ARCServe program files directory

I just needed to go to the device and select merge, this merged everything I needed to restore the public folders.
