Need assistance resolving errors when restoring Mailbox Store

We have a user whose inbox contents have mysteriously disappeared.  This was my 1st mailbox recovery, but seemed pretty straightforward.  Recovery Storage Group - Mailbox Store already existed and is currently unmounted.  Selected correct media set and Mailbox Store in Backup Exec.  Selected Settings - Exchange and unchecked all but Commit after restore completes and Mount database after restore.  Following are the Exchange Server Event logs generated after Backup Exec runs and fails.  Any help?

Hi,

Can you confirm that the RSG database is set to allow "Database to be overwritten by restore" via ESM > Admin Group > Server > RSG > Database Properties > Database tab > This database can be overwritten by a restore this should be checked.

The easiest 500 points you ever made.  Many thanks!  Now we know our backups work.  Is this the same method I'd use for a bare-metal restore?

If you were restoring the entire database and server on the original hardware you would be better to perform an Exchange recovery install and then restore the databases directly to the private information store as the users cannot access mailboxes in the RSG.
