ProbleM: when I restore a mailbox using Exmerge with a pst file, nothing is transferred.

Hi,

I am practising Exmerge for a big remote site migration in a couple of
weeks. One thing I dont understand is that I can backup one test
mailbox fine using Exmerge (I know this works, as I have opened the
mailbox pst file within outlook and everything is there), but when I
perform the restore using the pst file, nothing happens. There is no
error messages, and Emerge goes through the motions (though it finishes
supsiciously quick), but when I open the mailbox, no emails have been
restored. Although it is great that Exmerge is working for the backup
part of the stage, I am disappointed it isnt working for the restore. I
really dont want to move the mails from pst files manually when the
migratio happens, so if anyone out there has any ideas that would be
great.

Incidentally, the Exchange account I am using has the appropriate
permissions.

Thanks.

One more thing - this is a Windows 2000 domain and I am using the
correct version of Exmerge.

Hi,

What does the exmerge log say - it is normally located in the root of the c
drive.

ExMerge and Recurring Appointment
I have a user who deleted a recurring appointment. She used this recurring appointment to track work she completed each day. In deleting the appointment she ended up deleting all historical occurences of it as well. We were not able to recover it through deleted items or recover deleted items, so I did a restore to a recovery storage group of a week old full backup and used exmerge to dump everything in her mailbox to a pst file. When I open the pst file, I see her calendar items but this particular recurring appointment and its history are not there. Anyone have any idea why or what co...

SQL deadlock problem
I am currently having a big issue with sql deadlocking on the PrincipalObjectAccess table. The last few months I have been working on a synchronization process using a Biztalk orchestration.

It seems that when trying to update account records (which is one of the first actions in the sync process) the webservice gives me Generic SQL errors and SQL timeouts. After extensive profiling and tracing in SQL I found that there are...

Using part of a cell in a chart title
I have a chart which should get a title. However, this should be partly be used from a cell e.g. "counted with 5%" 5% should be taken from the cell and used in the title. Is this possible? Hi, Yes it's possible but all of the chart title needs to be in the cell.

Change File Locations to Private Drive (not Folder)

Our company has a main public drive and has also assigned each of the Staff their own private drive.
