run exchange information store on usb drive

I have 60 backup copies of  MDBdata folders on a usb drive. I need to extract e-mail from all 60 backup copies.

my exchange server is cloned on a test box.

I am trying to change the path of the exsisting information store to the USB drive.

Experts can this be done?

or is there a better way to do this?

It is Exchange 2003

A USB drive isn't going to be fast enough to allow the database to mount.
Also Exchange will not allow you to set the path as a removable drive. You will need some local storage to copy the files to.
