with Backup Exec 12.5 and Exchange 2007 you do usually make a GRT-enabled Backup. Means, you can restore singe mailboxes or even single Items from within a mailbox.
The only point to do so is, that you have to make a backup to disk to be able to make differential or incremental backups. From tapes only full backups can be restored.
So the most common way ist to make a B2D2T (Backup to disk to tape) by duplicatiing the backup made to disk by a policy.
Hope this helps,

Create the duplicate backup job for Tape-to-Disk and then restore from the disk based copy.
This is because BE does not support GRT restoration of exchange mailbox direct from tape based backup. If you are directly restoring from tape it will mount the information store in staging area (temp location on backup server) which will consume almost double the disk space than actual backup size i.e. if backup size is 100GB then staging area will require almost 200GB free space.
Now in your situation create duplicate backup job (tape-to-disk) and restore it from disk. It should show the mailboxes.
Recommendation for backing up exchange DB with GRT is first backup on disk and then duplicate job to tape. i.e. B2D2T
Have you looked at restarting your services and checking for any alerts in the Alerts tab?
Restarting services can refresh an environment that might have gotten into a tangle for some reason, and the Alerts will prompt you to any possible problems!
I would have also suggested unticking AOFO if you were using it, but if it worked before the issue started, then that is not it.
I have the exact same issue here. When i try to make a restore job from tape i'm only able to see the logs. User rights and all other settings i ok. When i make a job with the same settings but B2D instead every thing is ok. It worked previosly.
Should actually be a new forum query...when you duplicate to disk, it restores everything (edb, .chk file, logs etc) to disk.
If you were doing a straight restore of user data in Exchange, you shouldn't see those logs.
Not quite sure what your exact issue is...?
It's the exact the same problem as Ahmad had. When you take a look at the scrdmp Ahmad attached you are able to see the Logs only, not the mailsbox database.
When i do a duplicate backup (T2D) it contains the mailbox database. But I'm still not able to se the mailstore from within the BU exec restore job and select a single mailbox to redirect?
