    Yes. I use it.

    Be aware that the so called brick level back up is actually ExMerge doing the PST extract from the Exchange Information store and TSM backing up the resulting PST to disk or tape.

    You should find the associated brick backup documents and command syntax inside: c:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\TDPExchange. One file is labeled: brickback.cmd.smp, and the other is brickback.doc.

    to mabdullah:

    This modules uses MAPI interface to do this. BUT, Microsoft company do not recomend use this interface in case of backup!
    Does anybody knows - will Microsoft support this futures of this interface in the future? (Does anybody remember story about Exchange & NAS?).

    We have a tool by Quest that allows you to restore the database to another server and then "cracks" it open to allow brick level restores, down to single mail messages.
