We recently migrated to Exchange 2010 from Exchange 2007.  Turns out that some of the public data is missing on the 2010 side.  Our Exchange 2007 server is now gone, but we do have a full backup of the Public DB on it.

Is it possible to restore this to our Exchange 2010 server?

Anyone?   I think I'm close, but I need help with the Exchange Redirection screen in the backup exec restore job.

Unfortunately not. MS has never made that possible to restore from one version of exchange to another. You would need to build another Exchange 2007 server to restore and migrate it. Especially with all of the changes to how 2010 stores data. It no longer uses information stores, but storage groups.
