Recovering Dumpster from EX2010 Recovery Database
Posted on 2011-09-14
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.
