I have restored an exchange database to a recovery storage group.  How can I restore one folder that is a two levels down from the inbox to a user's mailbox?

With standard Microsoft tools you can do it directly, you need to recover the mailbox to a dummy account, you can then connect to it and export it to PST from Outlook and import it - or assign Full account permissions for the user to it and have the user add it as an additional mailbox and move\copy the items over.

If this is something you need to do often and are prepared to spend money on a 3rd party tool for you could use Ontrack from Powercontrols or Recovery Manager for Exchange from Quest as they allow you to extract folders and messages from the edb file without mounting it on through Exchange (but its not cheap!)

Agree with Gundog on using the standard MS tools, and you could also use ExMerge to export the information direct to PST and then recover from desired information from there.  If you end up going the 3rd party route check my profile for more about myself and company.

To my knowledge, exmerge does not exist in Exchange 2007.

I ended up restoring the entire mailbox, exporting the one folder I needed and importing it to the actual mailbox.

you are correct that it is not officially supported however If you want to use ExMerge, you can.  You need to install the Exchange 2003 management tools on another machine, then you can use the ExMerge tool on that box.

Glad you got your issue sorted out though
