We have sbs 2008 which runs exchange 200. We have a bunch of public folders. Yesterday someone deleted or moved (i dont know which) an important public folder which contains all our company's faxes.
Gladly we run a full back-up twice a day. So I have recovered the public folder (the edb file) database to a new folder on the server's desktop. How can I extract the "faxes" folder from this file? Or is there an even simpler way to recover this single folder?

was the deletion/move done via outlook?
if yes, then try to use the recover deleted items option in outlook/owa to get the folder back.

For some reason I could not recover it using outook.
There is a free tool available from microsoft called PFDAVAdmin which I used to recover this folder.
