Recover Shared Room Calendars

I have a user who, from a MAC, archived some shared calendars and this seems to have removed the calendars so no-one can now view them. I have restored a recovery database from Barracuda to Exchange but it is not yet mounted. How can I restore just the calendars to the primary Exchange database?

Exchange is not my forte, but in trying to research this, I came across a tool, Kernel Exchange EDB Viewer, that I thought would be helpful and I was able to find the recovered .edb file, but I cannot see that there are any calendar entries in any of the mailboxes. As a matter of fact, it doesn't show anything BUT the mailbox names so I don't know that I want to try their recovery software.

What it boils down to is, I need to recover most if not all calendars and get those restored. I appreciate any assistance in this effort.

Here is a very nice article on how to recover the data using the recovery database :

Alternatively you could just log on with an outlook client. Select the problematic calendar, go to Tools, press the arrow down and a new menu item will appear that will state "Recover Deleted Items".

Thank you. I was attempting to follow the referenced article before posting here but kept getting hung up a bit. I was able to go in and use the "Recover Deleted Items" feature (though I found it by right-clicking on the calendars in question rather than through "Tool"). There was a bit of a miscommunication between the user and I that complicated things a bit. :-) Thanks for the response and the help though.
