This article describes how to use MailRetriever to restore Exchange mailboxes and email messages backed up with Replay 4.
Replay 4 works with MailRetriever to perform item-level recoveries of Microsoft Exchange servers. The following solution describes how to open an Exchange database in Replay 4, and then recover the item using MailRetriever.
To restore mailboxes and email messages, do the following:
1. From the Recovery Points tab or the Last Recovery Point link of the Admin Console, select the recovery point to restore. Right-click and select Open for the mailbox store to open.
Replay for Exchange will launch Mail Retriever and the offline Mailbox Store is opened.
2. Click on the folders, messages, calendar items, tasks, or notes to restore and click the Restore button at the top of the window. The Restore option is also available by right-clicking the item to restore.
3. The Restore Wizard displays with 3
Redirect items to the recovery folder - Restores select items to a recovery of an online mailbox.
Redirect restored items to a PST file - Restores selected items (including folder hierarchy) to the specified PST file.
Restore to the original location - Redirects selected items (including folder hierarchy) directly into the mailbox in the online store where they originally resided.
Based on which selection is made, the wizard will prompt for additional information.
Once the restore is complete, a message will display that the items were restored successfully.
