I need to restore a single mailbox but am unsure how. In the restore window i have selected the required mailbox and moved the the "redirect exchange sets" tab

I believe I need to be in the "redirect mailboxes" field but am not sure what to put in the redirect box.

My exchange server is called "Exchange1" and from the restore selection I can see the the users mailbox alias is "mailbox1"

I believe I should put in \\Exchange1\mailbox1 but plz can someone confirm

Did you took a granular exchange backup ? If not you should create a recovery storage group. You can then restore the full exchange database to the exchange recovery group and copy the mailbox you'd like.

If you did take a granular backup you can restore the one mailbox you need.

I have figured out how to do this:

-find mailbox for restore under \exchange1\mailboxstore
-Microsoft Exchange Redirection(tb)
( •)redirect exchange sets
-Restore to server = \\hoshi (top field)
( •)redirect mailboxes or public folders
( •)redirect mailbox sets
-restore to mailbox = mailbox1 (use exchange alias which you can see in brackets when you select the mailbox to restore)
