Restore SDLT media with LTO 4 drive
Posted on 2011-05-10
I think I'm screwed but will ask anyway in case someone has come across this. I have been asked to restore an end users outlook calendar from 2009. I have the media but the problem is that this backup was done on SDLT media and I have since migrated to LTO media. I do have an internal SDLT drive on an older server but it is not exchange licensed so whenever I try to restore the calender to disk or redirect it to the new server it fails. To make matters worse, the original backup was done with Backup Exec 10.1 on Exchange 2003 and the new server is running BE 2010 on Exchange 2010 SP1. I think if I had an external SDLT drive I could plug it into the new server and restore the calendar but really don't want to have to make this purchase.
Anyone have any ideas on how I could restore this calendar?
