OK guys, here's my problem.
First: this is Windows 2003 SP2 with Exchange 2003 SP2. One server. One ORG. One Forest. One Domain.
I inherited an exchange server at this hospital about 2 years ago. It was in bad shape. Since then, I have been cleaning it up and moving users in new stores within different storage groups. The original 150GB store is gone and in its place are 11 Stores within 3 storage groups. My backup guy has backups before and after these changes were made. What has happened is a user lost quite a bit of email and needs it restored. The problem is that it needs to be restored form the single store before all these changes.
So far I have created a store with the same name and location as the original 150GB store. Then I was able to attach the original store to the Recovery Storage Group. I had the backup restored and so far everything worked. I mounted the restored store in the RSG fine. The problem is I cannot exmerge the data to a PST. Im getting a permission error, but I have full rights to the store. I can exmerge data on different stores with no problem. I do this all the time, just never with a old store.
Here is a piece of the log:

Any Ideas? What do I need to do to get the data off the old store?
