Exchange 2010 Backup with Backup Exec 2010

we are using Backup Exec 2010 for backing up our exchange mailboxes.
I have used this guideline for the set up:

I have checked the "Microsoft Information Store" like described in the guideline but then there the mailboxes are not seperately visible (see screenshot).
There is just a single "mailbox database" and a "public folder database" available.

Know my question is:
 Is this normal? So in the case of data lost is it possible to restore all mailboxes?

Thank you in advance!

interested to see someone using my blog :D
yes backup them and you will backup all the mailboxes on that database, and you can either restore the hall database or restore specific mailbox or specific email later with the restore job
