Single MB restore in Exchange 2003/Symantec 12.5

I would like to recover a single mailbox in Exchange 2003 that has been backedup to B2D. What are the laymans steps? Does the mailbox need to be connected to a user first? This one is not connected in the ESM and has zero for the size. The Restore job is running via Symantec 12.5 but runs for many hours with no dat collection, I presume because of the size (none) and it being disconnected.

Please advise...Thanks

I have no experience of Symantec 12.5, but standard Exchange procedure would be to create a Recovery storage group, add the DB that used to contain the mailbox to it. Then restore the DB. Exchange will redirect the restore to the Recovery Storage Group and then you can access the old mailbox content via exmerge

How long ago was this users mailbox deleted? You might be able to simply 'reconnect' it to the user account
