I need to know if I restore a users deleted exchange folder, will the dumpster information be restored as well. I am running exchange 2003 and using veritas backup exec. I backup the entire exchange database on a daily basis. I had my deleted item retention policy set to 7 days. I need to find some messages that were sent and deleted on 10/2 - 10/4. I have a backup from 10/5 and want to know if I restore this users deleted folder will the dumpster info be restored to so that I can use the ->tools->recover deleted items menu option to find these messages.
