restore some contacts to view the member of value

I have to find the "member of" groups that some contacts were part of. I deleted them thinking that I had the information stored, but I missed it.

I am using Netbackup 7.0 for backup of AD. I am looking through the restore options now, but figured that I would ask here first.

I think you can't restore the properties of an object, you have to restore the entire AD object.
To do so:
* Restore the system state and/or AD dump file
* boot into "Directory Services Restore Mode"
* restore AD/AD object via the ntdsutil

For netbackup, there is nothing much about it.
