Hi,
I have a user who just realised that they had deleted a folder, the problem is that it happened 3 months ago. My question is can i via Backup Exec export the required folder to a pst file? Through the wizard i have found the exact date which holds the folders but the options thereafter suggest putting the mailstore offline.

Any help and guidance would be really appreciated.

BackupExec can only restore to Exchange, and not to a PST.  It's been like this for years, since 11d.
 
You can restore to an alternate mailbox though, that would be the closet workaround

RJEH -> RE: Backup Exec Single Mailbox Restore (9.Feb.2011 7:09:30 PM)

Here is what I ended up doing to accomplish my task-

1.       Create a recovery account. Create a Recovery DataBase.

2.       Restore the data from tape to the RDB

3.       Use the Restore-Mailbox CMLet to restore the mailbox to a folder in the live system.

4.       Open the recovery account using Outlook.

5.       Create a PST file

6.      Drag and drop the entire restored folder that PST.

I found the solution. I created a standard restore job (not using the wizard). It gives the option to restore the selected folder to an existing mailbox, i used the administrator's. Once it was completed i logged into outlook and copied the folders to the users mailbox.

Note: you must specify a local drive with enough space to mount the store first
