Recovering a deleted calendar from a public folder on Exchange Server

One of our users has managed to delete a public calendar from within a public folder in Outlook on there machine. This seems to have affected all users who have the ability to view this calendar & they now cannot see any calendar entries made today or more importantly future appointments.

We have a backup inplace from yesterday evening but this includes the clients whole mail box & calendar so has implications if applied that they will loose historical e-mail sent & recieved after the backup.

Is there any other method of retrieving the public folder/calendar from the server?

We shall be monitoring this question closely & shall try to respond to your questions quickly.

Thanks

Try using outlook web acess to do it. If you go in to outlook we access and try and recover a folder of your own that you havce deleted the URL would look something like:
http://servername/exchange/username/Deleted%20Items/?cmd=showdeleted&btnClose=1

so just try chaning it around a bit to look like:
http://servername/public/toplevel/subfolder/?cmd=showdeleted&btnClose=1

And you should be able to do it from within OWA.

open his Outlook, go to the public folder where the calendar was deleted, Go to Tools _> Recover Deleted Items and recover it. If you are using Outlook 2003, use registry edit to bring this functionality.

Follow http://support.microsoft.com/kb/886205 to create the DumpsterAlwaysOn registry key.
