Restore Exchange 2003 Calendar Items with Backup Exec 12.5

I'm trying to restore numerous calendar items which disappeared from a public SBS Exchange 2003 shared calendar.  Basically I am restoring all prior calendar items before a recent date.  All of the items newer than that date are still in the calendar.

I found the missing items from a past backup but when I try the restore I get the following error:
========================
Error category    : Resource ErrorsError             : e00002fd - Cannot restore properties for one or more messages or folders. Review the credentials for the resources in the job, and then run the job again.
For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-765
========================

The credentials are currently set for our server domain administrator id.

Also, how do I know that this will restore the missing items and merge them back into the calendar and not replace the calendar?

Thanks!!

There is a hotfix from Symantec that addresses this issue - run liveupdate (open symantec backupexec / Tools / LiveUpdate);

If you are restoring data, the default setting is to overwrite data only if older, so it shouldn't overwrite the newer entries, and should always merge data (check the job settings / general and exchange info sections in the left pane of the restore job)
ALWAYS Take a backup of your data before trying a restore, as best practice.
Hope this helps you

RobinHuman, does that hotfix work with BE 12.5?

Hi,
There's a different hotfix for BE12.5 - if you do the liveupdate, it should patch it according to your version.

Liveupdate found Hotfix 169741 but I have not been able to find a 12.5 version of the 351400 hotfix.

I just took a closer look at my restore job and the actual calendar.  It appears that the bulk of calendar entries were actually restored and the job log contains approximately 50-100 that were not.  Once I saw the restore job error I assumed that NO calendar entries were restored but that was incorrect.  I'm not sure how to search through those that were not restored to see what the actual dates were so I can determine if they are important or not.
