Is there a secret to getting Sent items restored to a mailbox? Using Windows Server Backup, I've backed up and subsequently restored my Exchange database directory and after ensuring the database was in a clean shutdown state, created a recovery database and mounted it. Through get-mailboxstatistics I can see the mailboxes and can even restore non-sent items to a user's mailbox. But I can't seem to -includefolders \sent; nothing restores (no errors; just an empty folder at the user's end) and I've tried this using multiple backups and multiple accounts. What am I missing? BTW, this is Exchange 2010 running under Windows Server 2008 R2.
