SBS 2011 Trying To Restore Deleted Mailbox - Exchg 2010

I need to try and restore a deleted mailbox in Exchange 2010 on an SBS2011 box for a user account that was accidentally deleted today.  At present nothing shows in Disconnected Mailboxes.  I have checked and the Exchange retention policy is set at 30 days.  I have found the Clean-MailboxDatabase command that may make the mailbox show up, but am unsure of the correct syntax to use.  Any help greatly appreciated.

I would run it like this, which would run it against all databases in the environment:

Get-MailboxDatabase | Clean-MailboxDatabase

Open in new window

Once this is ran open Exchange Management Console > Recipient > Disconnected Mailboxes and see if you can find the mailbox. If its there you should be able to reattach it to the proper AD user account (you can either use the old one that had the mailbox attached to it previously, or you can create a new AD user account and attach it to that).
