Exmerge is Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Merge Program, and basically it
can allow an admin to extract data from mailboxes on a server and merge
them to an existing server. It can also be used as a brick level backup
- It logs into the server as a mapi client(just like outlook can in
corporate/workgroup mode) and extracts the data and creates a
mailbox_name.pst file(which can be opened by Outlook or imported back
into the database), it can also remove messages from the database, in
case of a virues. If you want to know more about the process check out

        OK... what's "exmerge"?

                I would try to restore the tape to an offline box, mount
the database, exmerge the user's data, and then your boss can view the
employee's work. We use ntbackup as well, the method we use is to backup
the entire server on tape, and exmerge all the  mailbox's and backup
them up as well. If we need to restore a single mailbox or just view a
single *.pst file, exmerge can solve that problem.

                        But can I restore an individual's mailbox only
if we've been using ntbackup as our backup method?  I may have
misunderstood (i'm new here), but i thought that was only able to do the
whole shooting match, not individuals.
                         
                        And no, unfortunately, the budget here is
dreadful, there are no test or backup systems.  Ugh.

                                My first guess will be to restore the
users mailbox, and the export the calendar... do you have a test system
you could put this on?

                                Hi All,
                                 
                                I've been asked to figure out how, if it
all, to do this.  We had an employee who is no longer with us, has been
gone for probably about a year.  My boss wants to get a copy of his old
Outlook calendar.
                                 
                                We've been using ntbackup.   Assuming I
can even find a tape that goes back far enough to still contain his
data, is there any way to restore this without screwing up everyone
else's mail?
                                 
                                How would I go about this?  Anyone have
any ideas?
                                 
                                Thanks,
