Restored Exchange 2010 Database?

I'm testing the Windows Server Backup Application for restoring the Exchange Server database.

Right now as a test that database has 1 mailbox in it.  I created emails, contacts, notes and calendar appointments for that mailbox.

Then I completed a full exchange backup using Windows Server Backup.

Next I went into that mailbox and deleted the calender items, emails, notes, etc.

This I assumed would be an effective test.  Then restored the backed up database before I deleted those items in the mailbox.

The server reported the restore was successful.  I log back into the mailbox and all the items I deleted are still in the deleted items folder.  Prior to the backup they were in the Inbox, Calendar, Notes, etc.

Is this normal?  Why wouldn't the deleted items be back to where they started before the backup?

Thank you!
