Can you exmerge an umounted Exchange database?

We use Acronis as our primary backup solution. The main limitation of acronis as opposed to Backup Exec is it does not do brick level mailbox restores.

We can always pull the database from our backup system but the question is, what is the easiest way to pull a mailbox out without have dismount our customers live databases.

Exmerge will only work if the database is mounted.  So you wouldn't need to dismount the database to do this.

If you have Exchange 2007 you can use Restore-mailbox cmdlet to restore mailbox. You have to restore DB to recovery storage group first.

Like Ralfeus said, recovery storage groups are the way to go.
