Archived items, from one or more archives, need to be restored back to the original mailbox or a designated mailbox of your choice.


Use the Enterprise Vault Export Wizard 

  1. Open the Vault Administration Console and expand the Archives container
  2. Right click Archives, select Export...

  3. Then choose 'Export Archives to their original mailboxes' 

  4. Follow the wizard through to completion

The above steps should have restored all items, from the archive, back to the original mailbox from which they were archived originally.

Note: This process will restore items that no longer have shortcuts in the mailbox.  Eg. shortcuts were previously deleted by the user but the associated archived item is still in the archive.  

Check the export report for any problem items, this is usually found in the Enterprise Vault Install location (C:\Program Files(x86)\Enterprise Vault\Reports\Export_***********.txt) the export report will be named according to the date of the export e.g. Export_20121002074055.txt (2012/10/02 07:40:55).
