Restoring Data on Exchange 03

Hello:  My boss lost his contacts and I need to restore it.  I recently backed information storage full back up via NT back up.  What can I use to extract only his contact info and restore it to him?

Thanks very much.

Use Recovery Storage Group and then extract the data you need into a pst. Let the Boss open this in Outlook and move the data he needs over.

How to use Recovery Storage Groups in Exchange Server 2003

Exchange 2003 Backup and Restore with NTBACKUP

* Deleted Item Recovery and Deleted Mailbox Recovery

Using Recovery Storage Groups in Exchange Server 2003

* I would also investigate Deleted Item Retention settings in Exchange (as well as Mailbox retention). It allows users to restore items they have deleted from their deleted items up to a period specified by yourself. I have ours set to 2 months and since doing this have not had to restore from tape since.
