Exchange Server 2010 no longer has the notion of Storage Groups, which were used in Exchange 2007 and 2003 to contain logical groupings of databases. Exchange 2010 now simply lets you create databases on mailbox servers. The difference is that in Exchange 2003/2007, you created a Recover Storage Group (RSG) to restore the database into. In Exchange 2010, you simply restore the database and connect to it as a Recovery Database (RDB).
While the main purpose of Exchange backup is to enable server, storage, and datacenter disaster recovery scenarios, a common and routine request of Exchange admins is to restore an individual mailbox. Microsoft does not provide a native and fully automated way to granularly restore a single mailbox from an Exchange database backup.
In this video I’ll demonstrate the step by step process for recovering individual mailbox item for an Exchange Server 2010 using Windows Server Backup.
