Hi,

One of my exchange databases crashed. I have manged to restore from the last full back up and the store is mounted, happy days.

However, there is now a gap in the users messages.

I have daily backups, but in backupexec they only appear as log files.

Can i restore to this point in time by restoring the log files?

you will need to replay the log

If I perform this from the date before the crash, will it ADD to the mailbox, or roll back to the date before the crash and the user will lose all recent messages?
