I'm running Backup Exec 11d revision 7170 on a Windows 2000 server.  I've been backing up my information stores to tape using the settings to backup individual mailboxes.  Now, I need to restore several months of mail to one mailbox, and I can't figure out how to do it.  When I go into the restore menu, I can select the store but can not expand it to show mailboxes.  (I miss the old brick level backups...restores were so easy!)

It's obvious that I'm missing something.

This is the first time I've needed to restore since I upgraded a few weeks ago.

My logon account is already in the GAL and has a valid mailbox and has a couple of email messages in it.  This account is a member of domain admins, backup operators, exchange domain servers.

Interesting...I took a look at the job log for the tape set I want to use in the restore.  It does not give me a list of individual mailboxes.  The backup set from last night does.

It doesn't look like the earlier tapes have the individual mailboxes backed up.  I'm going to have one very unhappy user.
