I'm running Exchange 2010 SP1

I'm looking for some data that exists in an old database backup.  The database has been restored to a recovery database and the data I'm looking for is in the dumpster an account.  I'm having some problems getting to that data because running the recover-mailbox command does not appear to put that data into my target mailbox.  The command I'm running is:

recover-mailbox -identity targetuser -RecoveryMailbox sourceuser -RecoveryDatabase RecoveryDB -Targetfolder Recovery

This is restoring the contents of everything to a folder labeled Recovery in the target mailbox.  Recoverable Items, however, is not being copied there.  I know there is dumpster data available as get-mailboxstatistics for the recovery mailbox shows 400MB of totaldeleteditemsize.  

I've also tried the above command with -IncludeFolders "\Recoverable Items" which does not restore anything.  

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Well I've done some additional research and found the appropriate command in order to export the dumpster.  New-MailboxRestoreRequest is the correct restore cmdlet to use.  Afterwards I was able to use search-mailbox with the -searchdumpsteronly option to export the dumpster contents to another mailbox.
