Recovery Storage Group
I wonder is any of you familiar with recovery storage group ? I have a user's mailbox who want me to restore those of his email he accidently deleted from 1 Oct 08 – 17 Oct 08 from the sent items folder. I know this user’s mailbox was hosted on a exchange 2k SP4 server until last fri but was then transferred to Exchange 2k3 SP2 on Mon. I know it should be possible to restore the 2k3 mailbox from a 2k3 mail store via recovery storage group along with the ExMerge on a exchange 2k3 server but will this trick still work now in this scenario with his mailbox on exhk02 (2k3) currently while the last backup I can get on exhk01 is past fri 17/10/08, which is exactly up to the last date he wanted…any clues on will this be possible ? any assistance or help would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You are not going to get the deleted items which were deleted before you moved his mailbox to the ex2003 server, no. Those are lost when you move the mailbox.
