windows backup 2008 R2 and Exchange DAG

Using Server Backup on 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010 SP1.  The application is registered with Backup, and goes through the consistancy check for the application when performing the backup.  The backup is sucessful, but when teying to do a restore, the application option is greyed out, any idea how to fix this problem?

We are having multiple databases with passive copies, we had to activate all copies on the drive for the backup to succeed.

The other problem could be that you do not have the entire volume selected.
