Dear all, We upgraded our exchange 2000 to exchange 2007 sp1 last serveral month and we phase out the old exchange 2000. However, our user would like to restore the exchange 2000 mailbox from the last year. We don't know how to restore it from the old backup tape as the old exchange 2000 already phase out. All old exchange backup keeps in our enviornment but we don't know how to restore the data. Can we restore it in Exchange 2007 environment or we have to install old exchange 2000, active directory and backup exec 10d in the seperate environment which isolidate existing enviornment for restore purpose? Or any new idea?! Old environment : Email: Exchange 2000 Cluster Backup: Veritas Backup Exec 10d New environment: Email: Exchange 2007 CCR Backup: Veritas Backup Exec 12 Best Regards,

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

From your old data tape backup, restore the EDB files consisting of your original mailboxes on your Exchange 2000 to any available space even on a file server. I would purchase Ontrack Power Controls or Quest Recovery Manager for Exchange which can open up the edb files directly and then you would be able to extract the information you need to a pst file. Highly recommended tool. Once you have the pst file, you can have the user point to it within Outlook and then upload or use directly.

Alternatively you can set up a recovery envrionment running Exchange 2000, restore the EDB to the recovery server, and then connect to the restored mailbox through Outlook — still in your recovery environment. Then use Outlook to export to PST, transport the PST to your production environment, and merge the detla (or whatever messages are of interest) with the user’s current mailbox.
