I am new to exchange and currently practicing backing up and restoring exchange 2003 so that I am ready if I need to do this in the real world. I am using ntbackup, but it isn't working the way I expected. Here is the scenario I am trying: User1 sends email to User2 on Monday. Monday night NTBackup runs normal backup successfully on exchange. Tuesday morning User2 deletes said email from inbox and deleted items. Tuesday afternoon User2 realizes they need that email, so i restore exchange from monday nights backup, however once the restore is completed, the email isn't back in his inbox. I was expecting the restore to put exchange back to exactly how it was on Monday night when it was backed up. Is this not the case? Am I missing something?
No announcement yet.
