I have a .BKF of Exchange created using NTBackup.  I want to create .PST files of each mailbox.  Is there a way to do this without restoring to an Exchange server.  Ideally I'm looking for some tool to go straight from the .BKF to .PST.

    Yeah, the best way would be to create a VM with Exchange on it, restore the backup to the recovery storage group, then connect to the mailboxes and move stuff over.

    "best" is a concept relative to time and money

    If you have a stack of time and no money, sure, building a VM is the best way to go.

    Vice versa, Ontrack (or another tool) can have PST files in your hands in minutes.
