  • Restore (merge) 1 mailbox from the RSG

    Hi All,

    I have set up a nice new SBS 2003 R2 server, have a couple of users, about 4 GB in 4 mailboxes and the world looks a little better

    I have created a store backup with ntbackup, just like described on this site.
    Then I deleted some apppointments, my whole inbox and all contacts.
    I can do a full restore of the store, it gets mounted and the restore is successfull.
    So, the backup was okay, I have tested the restore.

    What I would like to try, is a mailbox restore.
    So again, I deleted some apppointments, my whole inbox and all contacts.
    I have created a Recovery Storage Group, did a restore, the mailboxes appear in the RSG, I can select 1 mailbox, choose either Merge or Copy, so far I have been successfull.

    Now, when I choose Copy Data, I get a perfect copy of my whole mailbox, in a separate folder of my mailbox, there is nothing missing in there.
    When I choose Merge Data, I get my Inbox back, I get all my contacts back, but not all appointments, some are back and some ar missing.
    Why is this ?

    Regards,
    Arjan.
