Hi Danny,
When you restore into the RSG, there is no need to shutdown or dismount
the production IS. That is the biggest selling point for Microsoft with
RSG. It eliminates the need for a dedicated recovery server, and lets
the production server to be used as a recovery server without any

Subject: [exchangelist] Restoring permantly deleted items - Exchange

Trying to restore some permanatly deleted items from a users mailbox.
So, here is what I am thinking:

1) Backup the current IS - just in case
2) With the Recovery Storage Group Mount the Store which contains the
mailbox which contains the items that were deleted.
3) Restore a recent backup into the RSG
4) Run Exmerge on the restore RSG, and select the mailbox and extract to
5) Point the user to the PST to open in Outlook and copy the message


1) Can I do this without stopping the live IS or interrupting users,
2) Would you do this any differently? Any tips?

Thank you,
