Exchange Server APM version 4.0.10 is a faulty version that was not meant for General Availability.
It introduced a bug whereby the restore options fields and tags where set in the wrong order.
Consequently, the backup records taken with version 4.0.10 do not have the correct mapping of tags
and fields as in the restore options on later versions of the plugin.
This issue was fixed in later releases and 4.0.10 retired.
