Is it possible for backup exec to restore an incremental backup after full backup restore is mounted in Exchange

Here's the situation...we had an exchange crash. We tried to restore from a full backup and 2 incrementals, but it failed.

Finally, we were able to get the full backup to restore. We got the Exchange mailbox stores mounted and people are using email that was backed up 3 days ago.

My question...and this is probably a "no" - but I'll feel better if I ask - Now that those stores have been restored, mounted and used...would it be possible to fold that incremental in, or is it too late?  If the answer is "no" -- if you have a link that I can show my boss...it'd help.

Thanks,
LISCR

if you still have the full backup, you could create a recovery storage group, add the mailbox store, perform the restore, and merge data
