Restoring Exchange 2003 using Ntbackup

I have a backup of Exchange 2003 that was from a crashed SBS 2003 server.  The new server has been installed (SBS 2011) and i was able to export/import using PST files from each workstation.  However, there is a public folder calendar and a couple of mailboxes from non-existent users that need to be retrieved from the backup.

What would be the best way to recover those items?  As additional information, I do have access to another SBS 2003 server.

The only way you'll be able to recover those is to rebuild an Exchange Server with exactly the same settings (server name, organization name, etc) and then do an exchange recovery then export the mailboxes and you'll need to set up a client to that server to be able to export the public folder

Say it isn't so... there's no other way to recover a public folder calendar?  Rebuilding a server is not feasible.  I was able to locate a OST file and convert it for the non-existent users.

Only option is to use a thrid party tool like Ontrack Power Controls.

The following software is much cheaper than Ontrack Power Controls and I can vouch that it works well because I have a copy and use it when the need arises:

You are welcome.  Sorry it cost a few hundred dollars, but much cheaper than the alternatives : )

Thanks for the points.
