Exchange 2007 Recover Storage Group

The backup team informed that they unable to restore the data to RSG due to DPM issue. What they did is restore to folder.
I managed to clean shutdown the restore database.

May I know can create RSG and point to this clean shutdown database then use Database Recovery Management tool to export the data to PST.

I found this http://blogs.technet.com/b/dhardin/archive/2009/08/25/simplifying-the-dial-tone-database-recovery-process-in-exchange-2007.aspx but not quite sure to apply to my screnario

Can I do this:

- clean shutdown the restore database
- Create RSG
- Moved clean restore database and to directory where created RSG
- Use Database Recovery Management tool to mount the RSG
 
Please help

I think thats depends what are you trying to recover, is not same recover single mailbox rather entire database.

Option to recover to file, restore your database to a folder, you can:
- Delete all RSG
- Create new clean RSG and keep unmounted.
- Replace files RSG with your restored DPM files
- Mount your RSG, on this point you have all mailboxes on RSG
- Export affected mailboxes to PST
- Merge on active mailboxes
- Delete RSG.

Or can use third party tool to extract mailboxes from your restored database.
