Hi Experts,

I have to restore some 100 emails with BE2012.
All is working, but before the job starts, BE sends a message box.
See the picture.
Can you tell how to proceed or what is the maximum ?

If the backup Selection List contains more than 100 individually selected items (around 200KB), the size of the selection list grows when it contains many files with long paths and metadata.  This will cause the error "Unable to update the restore items.  The job cannot be submitted because the number of selections exceeds the maximum amount allowed by Backup Exec" to be seen.

this is known issue with BE,

The Restore into a PST file works.
But I need all emails in the inbox of the user.
How to do this quickly ?

hint :

Cause : error: The backup of the item is bad.

The Destination Mailbox is full, or has reached the Mailbox quota Limit To Restore the Content.  Please review the storage quota on the database being restored to

ok I see, I have extended the quota to 800MB for this mailbox, the same error.
Now I will try with some less emails to restore.

Any idea, how to restore to another mailbox and merge it later ?

there must be another big issue, because when I want to restore 2 emails with 3kb each, I get the same error.

The job failed with the following error: The backup of the item is bad.

Do you have any idea how to recover the emails ?

no more errors in event viewer.
I tried to restore to RSG with this error:

Backup Exec Alert: Job Failed
(Server: "S09BACK") (Job: "CL03EX Restore RSG Userdatenbank") CL03EX Restore RSG Userdatenbank -- The job failed with the following error: Unable to restore some Microsoft Exchange components because one or more of the databases are currently mounted, or because the recovery storage group or recovery database is not properly configured. Use the Exchange System Manager or Exchange Management Console to check the configuration of the recovery storage group or recovery database and the mount status of the databases.
