I am using Symantec Backup Exec w/Exchange module.  But am not backing up individual boxes just the store.  And am doing a NT/exchange backup.

Hi sccit,

if you have at least Backup Exec 11d, you can enable the so called "Granular Restore Technology". You then just have to back up the storage group where your public folder database is located and you will be able to restore individual objects.

You have to back up to disk first, though. If you want the backup on tape, you can duplicate it from disk to tape afterwards.

Kind regards

Marco
