Need to restore SINGLE public folder in Exchange 2000

We use BackupExec and I have a need to restore only one of our Exchange 2000 public folders from backup.  It seems that one of the managers deleted all the items.  

I don't want/need to restore any of the OTHER folders as they contain public calendars, etc.

Ideas/advice appreciated!

Any hope Deleted Item retention was turned on?  If so and the folder was deleted within the retention period you can restore it easily.

If not, were you doing brick-level or Information Store level backups with BackupExec?  If brick-level it should be straight forward to just restore it, if not you've got a bit of a problem.  I don't believe you can mount more then one store in Exchange 2000 Standard.  I'll leave somebody else to comment on this if the other ideas above didn't help, but I think your options are to dismount the current stores, mount the old one, backup the public folder to PST, dismount the old store, remount the live one then restore the PST of the public folder.  Or build another server with Exchange 2000 on it and mount the restored stores on it, backup to PST and import into live information store (this would be a safer option, I'm not sure the effect of mounting an old store into Exchange 2000, then mounting the new one again, could be risky if not done right!).

Zenith,

I'm awarding the points to you.  I'm sure your plan would have worked AND you were the only one who took enough pity on me to respond :)

The user didn't notify us in a timely manner as to the loss and what they'd tried to do to "fix" the problem they created.  Happily, the information was stored elsewhere in another format, so they just copied it back to the newly empty folder.
