Hi all

   How do I restore exchange 2010 document level to a pst (or to archive file) rather than the original user mailbox ? Is it possible to achieve that ?

Can you provide more info, if you want to restore from backup, then you need to create a recover DB then export to pst or merge data in to mailbox. For all this you need to use powershell or EMS.

Or if you are just looking to export data from mailbox, you can use outlook or EMS both.

I can kindly restore by arcserve ? Database backed up by arcserve, restore it to D:\ for example, and what are the different if I restore by using document level and recovery database ? I think restore by database is take much longer time as the database size is not small, and restore by document level can choose specific mailbox and mail item to restore, am I correct ?

So document level or brick level we say it. If brick level option is available use it. It is easy and doesn't require complete DB to be restored.

If brick level option not available then restoring db is last option.
