  • Exchange Public Folder recovery

    I have an associate who is utilizing NTBackup to backup an Exchange Information Store which stores mailboxes and public folders to tape. It appears that after conducting maintenance and having to restart the server, the entire Public Folder hierarchy had disappeared. Differential backups are taken daily, whilst a full is conducted at the end of each month. My concern was the restore process going forward, what best practice or steps should be taken to restore the public folder hierarchy, especially with the type of backups being done and the utilization of NTbackup.

    It seems to me that using ntbackup, you would have to restore the last full backup and the last differential backup of the information store in order to recover the entire PF tree.
