Backup/Restore Nightmare

Backup/Restore Nightmare

Backup/Restore Nightmare

After suffering a server crash and re-installing SBS 4.5, I tried to restore the Exchange server from an ntbackup backup.

This trashed the entire Exchange installation and I ended up having to re-install SBS again.

I don't need everything in the Exchange backup, but there are some e-mail address and messages in the Public Store that I would like to retreive.

Is there any way I can do this, or are there any companies out there that are able to extract data?

Thanks for any tips.

RE: Backup/Restore Nightmare

Refer to the thread by bjgadmin titled "Move Exchange DB to a new server" and you can get a few answers to restoring Exchange database. Exchange is very restrictive as to what parameters have to match in order to do a restore. You can only transfer the database to a roughly identical server.
What kind of crash did you get and what were the errors?
