I have backups directories of backupexec files copied to an external hard drive from last year. I need to restore a users mailbox that was on exchange 2007…that server no longer exists, the mailboxes were moved to a 2010 box.

How can I use backup exec to read that directory and restore a users mailbox (pst restore would be ideal)?

Thanks.

no that has nothing to do with what i asked. its good reference material if i want to use windows server backup in the future.

i have an external hard drive with older backup exec files that i need to get my bexec application to read and be able to restore from. how do i accomplish this? i have tried adding the location under device and run inventory and scan but under recover i dont see any options for that location.

Create a media set then add the files to this media set. You should then be able to catalog the files which will allow you to carry out restores.
