I need to restore messages from a Symantec 2010 backup of Exchange 2007
The help file states that the Exchange store must be dismounted to run the restore
Is this required when restoring messages to an existing mailbox?
What is the proceedure?

Before restoring data, a few things need to be checked and enabled.

1.Check that there is sufficient disk space available. This is because Backup Exec will stage the entire Exchange Information Store before restoring any individual items.
2.The default location for temporary files is: C:\Temp. This needs to be changed to the drive with the most space available.
This is done as follows: Tools ¿ Options ¿ Restore (Path on media server for staging temporary restore data…).
3.The user concerned needs to be logged out of their email.
4.Make sure the user informs the Service Desk/engineer of exactly what they want restored. We cannot spend time trying to sift through emails, due to the manner in which Backup Exec views the emails.

Hi,

Please refer the below article from Symantec which shows step by step recovery.

Or you can use the third party tool called Ontrack recovery for Exchange for restoration of emails.
