Hi,
I have a user who has deleted some appointments from her calendar.  She has now decided that she needs these.
Is there a way to restore a user calendar? We do a backup everynight of the exchange but not sure about restoring a calendar.
Thanks

It depends how you are backing things up.  The calendar is part of of the mailbox just like the mail is.

If you back up Exchange as a whole, you will need to create a recovery storage group, restore the mail database to this and then export the calender from it, it sounds difficult, but it's really easy

here is how you do it for Exchange 2007 ;

Here is how you do it for Exchange 2003 ;

However if you are using a backup software that uses GRT (granular restore technology), then you should just be able to browse the backup to the calender level and restore it without the recovery storage group.  GRT in later versions of Backup Exec however have to prestage the whole database anyway so make sure you have plenty of free space!

If an item like email or calendar is deleted from mailbox then it will say in dumpster till retention time, so I would say if user has deleted the calendar item recently then please check his deleted item folder or Recover deleted item to restore from there, instead of doing an Exchange Restore first.
