Restoring Exchange 2007 Public Folder w/ Backup Exec 2010

I'm trying to restore an individual public folder and re-direct to a different public folder.  When I try to create the restore job, I receive the error "invalid data".  I'm guessing it's because I am not typing the path to the redirected public folder correctly but I can not find any documentation as to the correct format for the path.  I've tried:
\\SERVER\MICROSOFT INFORMATION STORE\SECOND STORAGE GROUP PUBLIC FOLDER DATABASE\INFORMATION SYSTEMS\

I've had success in the past restoring a mailbox to an Exchange RSG but I've read this method does not work for Public Folders.

Does anyone know the correct method for restoring an individual public folder using Exchange redirection.  

I've duplicated the backup job to disk as this worked before when I had to restore a mailbox.

I was able to restore the public folder calendar using re-direction after working with Symantec support for several hours. I was trying to restore from the duplicate backup job selection list and that was why I received the invalid data error when creating the restore job. I needed to use the actual media image name on the disk as the selection list.  Also, the errors in restoring were caused by a known issue in BE 2010 R2. After upgrading to R3 and applying all the hotfixes, it worked!

there can be only 1 public folder per exchange server. hence you will not be able to restore public folder on re-directed path.

There are only 2 options left!
1> Restore it on production (sorry sounds weird). If current production PF is not updated, you can take this risk.

or

2> Restore this PF on test server. After restoration, create Test mailbox and access usign Outlook. Create PST to store all Public Folders, or missing Folders/contents hierarchy wise and then restore those contents from PST in Production.
