We are trying to restore a database from a backup that was taken almost a year ago. Typically, I just create the Recovery Storage Group and do the restore. No problem. Well, the server that we are trying to restore is long gone. Exchange was uninstalled a few months ago and now when I create the Recovery Storage Group, of course its not in the list of servers and stores to select from. Now what???? Its very important that we do with restore. There has to be a way to do this? Microsoft can't expect you to keep servers around forever just so you can restore databases. Need some help.
