Because Exchange 2007 runs on 64 bit architecture, is there any way to test my backups besides buying another 64 bit server and trying to restore to that?  Thanks.

I just wrote a blog that walk you through a Recovery Storage Group and shows you how to restore data to a subfolder in a users mailbox, or another users mailbox.

RSG have been around since Ex 2003 and are a great tool for testing backups, I would recommend using powershell because I have found the gui tool a bit glitchy.....
