How to restore changed data in Public Folder

Someone changed 100 records in a public folder. It was just a small change in text.
Now I don't expect an undue button, but I hope for one.

Looking at it, it seems that I will have to detach the Second Storage Group - Public Folder Database and restore the whole folder or all of it?
Is there any way to do this without detaching it?

or is this a - Detach Second Storage Group, then restore from backup on top of what you have - overwriting it (which is not so bad)

OK - so I would love to just delete everything in the public folder from Monday and restore Sunday's backup.

I will not be loosing much at all.

So Dismount, check "This database can be overwritten by a restore" and restore from backup.

Ugly but it works.

Full backup restore and overwrite what was there. - overwriting all files

So in Exchange 2007 - Dismount, check "This database can be overwritten by a restore" and restore from backup with the overwrite files from restore on.

I guess you did help in the way that there was no good solution. With a database and transaction logs I thought I could just roll back the changes they made and would not have to restore from a backup.

At least it was not an issue for me since the other changes that were made I saved them before doing the restore from backup.
