Thx for your help in advance. I need to recover some pst archive files for a few disabled users.

I don't even know where to start. Thx again.

A little bit more information would be helpful. Version of Exchange including SP?

If the archive is at client end, it is only possible if you are using journaling or have a backup with the longer retention time at Server side. But it is a very tedious activity and cannot guarantee the full recovery.

Otherwise you have to recover the PST file at client side.
