Running Exchange 2003 and am wanting to pull out some old emails from
tape backup.  I understand that I can restore to the Recovery Storage
Group and use Exmerge to extract the desired emails to a pst provided
that the account exists in AD and the mailbox resides in the same
database when the tape was created.  We are looking to move our
information store from a disk array connected to an internal SCSI
controller to another group of disks connected to another newer
controller.  After I create an information store on the new disks and
move the mailboxes there, if a need arose where I needed to pull out
emails from those accounts, would it be a simple matter of just moving
the mailboxes back to the original store?
