Single mailbox recovery from the exchange database


Dear Expert!


We are using Data Protector 6.20 with Exchange 2010 with SP3.


The DP sucessfully integrated with Exchange 2010 and able to make backup of Exchange database and single mailbox.


we are always making backup of exchange database to exchange recovery. Now, we want to restore the single mailbox from the exchange database backup.  How could we restore single mailbox from the database backup ?


The single mailbox backup was very slow to make backup of 2gb which takes 30-45 minutes. therefore, i did not continue to make single mail box backup and start to take full database backup.


Please share your expierience about to recover the single mailbox out of database and speed up backup of singlemail box.

When you upgrade to DP 7, there is new functionality to do a Granular Recovery of a single mailbox from an Exchange database backup
