hi,

i'm hopefully missing something obvious here, but

was looking to restore an exchange backup to a different location as part of
a disaster recovery plan i've been developing. went to a recent backup and
the log files, mailbox store and public folder store said there were no
entries found. this was in contrast to the log for that day which indicated
the first storage group was backed up fine.

as a test, then did a backup to disk just of the exchange data, watched it
backup the files, all ok, size seemed about right. then came to restore the
backup and the same thing as above. gave me the folders but no files in
them.

very confused (and concerned that i don't have the backups i thought i did).
any body any ideas?

thanks
mark
