I am trying to restore from an MS backup file. I essentially backed up the whole information store and now I need to restore about 100kb worth of data.
I have created a recovery group in exchange. I have read (not followed) the instuctions at:
The instructions get shaky for me when it comes to the restore. This is a live, mission critical service for my company. I would most definitely lose my job if I blew up exchange or overwrote the database with an old one. Log files are deleted following a successful backup. When it comes to restoring my options are
Restore To: (i only have 1 option here...my live production server)
Temporary locatin for log and patch files: (no idea)
 Last Restore Set (log file will start agter this restore completes)
My concerns are:
A: I don't want anything overwritten
B: I don't want to interrupt production services
C: I want this in the recovery storage group so I can use exmerge to extract contacts from one user's mailbox and a folder containing messages from another.
