The Public Folder Restore Wizard helps you restore selected public folders or restore the entire public folder hierarchy of an Exchange organization from registered source storages to a registered target storage. You also have the option to restore each selected public folder to an individual Personal Folders (.pst) file.
Source and target storages for a restore operation can be selected from those registered with Recovery Manager for Exchange. You can also register new source and target storages while using this wizard.
