I'd like to restore some emails from a Public Folder backup using Backup Exec.

I have the restore ready to go, but not sure on the best way to go about it.

I cannot restore to a recovery database (You cannot restore Public Folders to a RDB).
I cannot restore to a PST (Needs 2012 or above?).

I'm not sure how to go about restoring to the Public Folder Database.  This involves taking it offline (and the Mailbox Database?).  Does this mean that staff need to come out of Outlook when I restore it?  What happens when you dismount a database?  Is it best done out of hours?

Any advice gratefully received!
