Exchange 2003 Clustered, all hotfixes and SPs. Backup using NTBACKUP which is Exchange aware. I created the Recovery Storage Group and added the mailbox store I wanted and all of that. When I go to NTBACKUP to do the restore, it does not ask me to put it in the REcovery Storage Group and I think it wants to put the .edb back in the original location. I want to restore to the Revocery Storage Group and do an exmerge to pull out the .pst and import whatever I want restored. Where on NTBACKUP can I tell it to restore the DB files to Recovery Storage Group and NOT to the original location (or does it?) I am afraid to click next for fear of wiping out my live DB.
