Exchange Database is set to keep deleted items for 1 year
retention policy applied to the mailbox is attached
User mailbox was 40GB a few months ago but is now 480MB (mailbox properties) - mostly calendar items. The user was able to delete everything else.
I am now faced with doing a restore from backup of a 600GB database for each day until I find the day it was deleted.
Looking for tips on finding out how he managed to delete everything and prevent it.
Any tips on recovering the mail (finding out when it was deleted or locating the mailbox size without restoring the db first) would be helpful as well. Backups were taken using Server Backup 2008 R2.
the multi mailbox search and new-exportrequest failed to return any emails. The user was terminated yesterday - will start there.
