I'm in the process of restoring a single mailbox using Backup Exec 11d and Exchange 2007. The first step I took was creating a Recovery Storage Group on Exchange 2007. I then ran a restore job in Backup Exec and followed the steps below:
Choose the "Redirect Exchange Sets" option and enter your Exchange Server name as "\\SERVERNAME", then "Redirect using Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) Snapshot Provider". Now select "Restore to Recovery Storage Group (RSG) (Exchange 2007 Only)"
What I am questioning is the fact that it looks like the restore job is restoring my entire exchange database of about 95G when I only selected to restore 1 mailbox that is about 2G. Does this seem correct?
I should note that in Backup Exec, I changed the default staging path from C:\temp to my D: drive as that had plenty of free space. I checked that folder after the job has been running for about 2 hours now and the folder size shows a size of 95G.
