Hi. We currently run full backups every day using Backup Exec 12d. We currently backup the Exchange Information Store to tape and the Use Granular Technology check Box is checked. Now I know I have read that when you are restoring and individual item from tape, you must first restore the Information Store to a temp location, where you will then be able to restore and individual e-mail item. Can anyone explain to me how all of this works from start to finish? All the documentaion I have read does not clearly explain what happens after it is put in this temp location. Also do I need to use the Exchange redirect feature in order to do this. I am concerned that when I do the restore, instead of putting the Info Store in a temp location, I am going to end up restoring over the current Info Store and causing my users to lose all of the e-mails they recieved since our last backup. Please help.
