Hi Paul

Apologies if I am missing something here but why not just change the database 
path to the new location? That way you are not changing database and your RSG 
functionality would be unaffected surely?

Subject: [ExchangeList] Question regarding Recovery Storage Group and Exmerge

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?
