Restore of Exhcange 2010 GRT backup only show log files

I have set up an Exchange 2010 backup job to use GRT - Incremental - Back up Logs (Truncate Logs)

When I go to restore, I only see log files

How do I restore individual mail items from a GRT backup

Any help would be appreciated

Hi,


You might want to stage your Information Store to disk if you're restoring from tape. GRT-based restores off tape never worked well with BE 2010 and back.

That article will assist you.

Thanks!

I think I found what the issue was ....

The Initial FULL backup of Exchange was NOT done with GRT enabled

I ran a full GRT enabled backup and then checked the restore capability - looks good

I then ran an Incremental GRT backup - also checked that new items had been captured and were able to restore - all was good.

It all comes back to the initial full backup

Thanks,

Steve
