One of our clients did some spring cleaning and removed old users off the server. Of course several weeks later they have no said they need a mailbox restoring as it has data in it they need!
I've managed to recover a backup that has the mailbox in question on it and I've created a recovery database from it. The problem I now have is the mailbox I need to recover is showing as mailbox disabled. Clearly all the data is still there as I can see from the size of the mailbox.
I've tried Connect-Mailbox but it doesn't work as it says mailboxes in a recovery database can't be connected to user account
I've also tried Restore-Mailbox but that also doesn't work saying user can't be found.
What is the correct way to access the disabled mailbox?
