Imagine this scenario:

1. SBS 2011 dies (but can still physically see the files if I plug the HDD to another pc - and Exchange files are intact)
2. The only backup available is from a month ago (SBS Backup)

If I do a clean install of SBS, restore from this month-ago backup, and grab the current EDB from the dead SBS 2011, would I be able to mount exchange with it and thus have the latest exchange data?
