We think it's because we have a public folder in the storage group.  According to microsoft we cannot restore to the RSG if it it contains a public folder.
"•You can only recover mailbox stores to a Recovery Storage Group. You cannot restore a public folder store to a Recovery Storage Group because that action is not supported. The methods that you use to recover a public folder store in Exchange Server 2003 are the same methods that you use in Exchange 2000 Server. "

I cannot restore to EDB.  I can only restore to RSG or a replica exchange server.  When you use the Backup Exec exchange agent you backup the water, not the jug.

****UPDATE****  There is no public folder problem we just cannot find the database in the RSG find option.

The problem was related to the RSG being mapped in a alternate exchange server that was currently offline.
