yes, I was doing "brick level" backups. Using that tape to do the restore.
Not sure how big the mailbox use, but > 1.2 Gig. The size of the mailbox
keeps getting bigger as the restore goes on.

Does anyone know when doing a mailbox restore in Exchange 5.5 if the oldest
items get restored first. Or do the newest items get restored first.

I am restoring a mailbox that got accidentally deleted and it has been
running for 260+ hours.
