Restore Exchange .edb/.stm files
Posted on 2012-04-03
I need to pull some information out of a single mailbox for a user who has no longer been with our company for a long time. I've got a year end tape which should have a backup of Exchange with their mailbox in it. We're running Exchange 2003 with Backup Exec 2010 right now. I know I will need to catalog the tape since I've replaced my backup exec server since then which isn't a huge deal. However, what I would like to do is just restore the entire .edb and .stm files to disk and not actually restore into Exchange, is this possible or do I have to go through the whole creating a recovery store and what not in Exchange 2003?
