Exchange 2003 Restore - Outlook downloading to PST file, lost the PST file .. restore logs ?
Posted on 2007-04-09
here is the story : we use exchange 2003 with outlook 2003 and OWA for some users.
the user that has the issue is using Outlook 2003.
for some reason he was setup with downloading his emails to a pst file instead of remaining in his outlook mailbox
when his manager cleaned his profile, he accidentally deleted the PST file, making him lose his emails. he lost only 3 days of received emails because he archived everything to a pst archive residing on our file server.
now the question is can i go in the exchange log files or somewhere to restore those three days of emails ?
when we do backups with backup exec we backup both the mailbox and the store files with the logs.
the mailbox backup is nearly empty because everythigng is downloaded to the PST, ...
where should we start ?
