      Just wanted to inform that Veeam has a free version for Exchange and SharePoint for restores with snapshots from Nimble.


      If you download the free version of Veeam Backup & Replication you know have the possibility to do restores of single email or full email boxes.

      Just follow the manual for Veeam Exchange and SharePoint.




      1. You need a server that can speak to your iscsi network (nimble) the server does not need to be the exchange server
      2. Install Veeam Backup & Replication on your server see to it that you have outlook 2010 64 bits installed and the dll file for exchange, it is all explained in the manual.
      3. Mount the snapshot of your exchange backup to the server.
      4. Bring it online add a letter for it.
      5. With diskpart remove the read only protection from the volume




      C:\> diskpart

      DISKPART> select disk xxx (from Disk Management)

      DISKPART> detail disk

      DISKPART> select volume <name>

      DISKPART> detail volume

      DISKPART> attributes volume clear readonly


      6. Start the veeam exchange software point out your edb file and your logs.

      7.Now you can see all of your email accounts, right click to export to either a email account or just the emails you need with pst.

      8. Same procedure for SharePoint.


      Also it does so much more so play around with it, we have used it today and it was really impressive and the cool thing it is free.


      I hope this helps...
