Exchange 2010 mailbox recovery

Posted on 2012-08-13

I am restoring mailbox content from a RDB into another mailbox in a folder called recovery. This folder contains the entire folder structure from the recovered users mailbox. Will the deleted items folder contain items that have been deleted from the mailbox but are still within the "do not permanently delete for x number of days" time period set on the database it self?

To the best of my knowledge this RDB will not include the Dumpster using native VSS Backups.

however, using Symantec GRE Backups - this is possible, read the article.

Yeah and restoring back to this users mailbox is not an option for us right now as it would cause issues for the user. There was no litigation hold so they will have to take what we can give them. Thanks for the feedback.

Not really a solution but there wasn't one in the end except what I was already doing!
