Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-09

This topic explains how to create a mailbox or public folder store.

  1. In Exchange System Manager right-click the storage group where you want to create the database.

    The structure that you see in the user interface (UI) should mirror the original structure on your backup media.
  2. Point to New.

  3. Click the type of database that you are restoring.

  4. In the Name field, type the name of the mailbox or public folder store exactly as it appears on your backup media.

  5. Click OK.

  6. When prompted to mount the store, click No.

    It is best not to mount the store at this point. Mounting the store can create log files that conflict with the log files on your backup media and therefore interfere with log file replay when you restore the database from backup.
