Select Target .Pst File Folder
On this page, you can expand the Personal Folders (.pst) file node in the Specified .pst file list, and select a target folder. The task will restore data to that folder.

- Target root folder in .pst files. Provides a space for you to type the name of a target root folder in target .pst files. The restored items will be placed in that folder. If the root folder whose name you typed does not exist, it will be created.
- ANSI (Outlook 97-2016). Creates .pst files with 2 GB storage capacity limit per file. These files do not support multilingual Unicode data. Generated .pst files are compatible with Outlook 97, 98, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016.

Select a Restore Method
On this page, you can select a method to restore data to a single Personal Folders (.pst) files or a series of .pst files.
- Quick restore. Restores data to a single .pst file whose maximum size 51200 MB. The restore stops upon reaching the file size limit.
- Advanced restore. Allows you to restore data to a series of .pst files. You can use the provided option to set the maximum size for each file in the series. When the current .pst file becomes full, Recovery Manager for Exchange creates a new .pst file and restores the remaining data there. This restore method takes longer as compared to the quick restore method.
Select Time Stamp to Apply
On the Select Time Stamp to Apply page, the wizard prompts you to select a preferred time stamp option to apply to the restored items. You can click one of the following two options:
- Date and time stored in the source storage. After the restoration, the restored items keep their original time stamp as stored in the source storage.
- Date and time of restoration. After the restoration, the restored items are marked with the actual date and time of their restoration.
