Hi Everybody ,
I I have deleted a mailbox in Exchange 2007, User is not in Disconnected Mailbox .
So I Create a recovery group , and restore the Storage Group.  Now I have a Recovery with the users mailbox , And I Want to restore it , but it doesnt work , its cannot restore the mailbox , when there is no mailbox..
I run this command  
restore-mailbox -id TEST -RSGDatabase 'Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Database
So I create a new mail box and link it to the Exiting AD user , but it still doesnt work &
Because the new mailbox I Created have a new GUID..  So the restore fails again..
What can I do in this scenario ,
 I have the User in AD, But Mailbox is deleted, I have the mailbox in recovery group..??

Have read all these links no help

You must merge mailbox in recovery storage group with new mailbox that you created. You could do this with Exchange Toubleshoting Assistant (ExTRA) or EMS.

Hi

I have read That Article before Many times...., and thats the Problem , when I try to merge , it fails because the new mailbox have a new Guid ,, another guid from the mailbox in the backup tape,
How do I Merge these to mailboxes when they have Different  Guid ?
The Old mailbox which had the same Guid as the backup tape,  have been deleted from the system , Remember

Any Idea , It should be possible  ????????

Yes : If your server has the capacity for an additional storage group and database.
The article is for Ex2003 but the same should work for 2007 also (I am not finding any reason for NO).

If the recovery storage group ain't working properly, try and use some exchange recovery software. In your case, I think these two tools can help
