Key features

  • Browse, search and selectively export items (emails, mailboxes, notes, contacts, etc.) directly from Veeam backups of your Exchange 2010, 2013 and 2016 virtual machines (VMs) or simply from EDB files
  • Restore lost or corrupted Exchange mailbox items to their original location1
  • Export Exchange mailbox and public folder items as Personal Folder files (.pst)
  • Perform eDiscovery and legal searches across your entire organization with features like export reports and export size estimation

Application-item recovery

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange, there’s no need to provision storage or restore entire mailbox stores — just choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting. You can:

  • Find and restore Exchange items from a previous Veeam or EDB file — whether an email was accidentally deleted by a user or calendar items or contacts were lost after synchronization with a mobile device
  • Archive an entire Exchange mailbox — from any point in time — to a PST file to ensure a smooth, complete handoff when employees leave or change jobs
  • Use Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange on your regular Veeam backups — even those created years ago — with no special backups or metadata needed
  • Zero in on the exact items you need for internal or external investigations for effortless eDiscovery

There are no backup agents to license, deploy and manage. Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange leverages agentless backup and recovery techniques to make Exchange restores fast, effortless and intuitive. This functionality is included in the product without any additional license fees to pay, and it’s free of the hassles associated with running a separate backup solution specifically for Microsoft Exchange.

Advanced functionality for granular recovery

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange also offers advanced functionality for granular recovery, making some previously challenging Exchange restore tasks easier and more efficient than ever. These features allow you to:

  • Recover hard-deleted (i.e., permanently deleted) items, which you thought might have been lost forever — and even better than Microsoft Outlook recovers them!
  • Search and recover Online Archive mailbox items (native Microsoft Exchange mail archive), purged folder support and hard-deleted items
  • Perform 1-click mailbox item recoveries with the web-based restore portal for help desk operators

Effortless eDiscovery

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange provides true eDiscovery capabilities that save you time and effort with:

  • Export report: Specifies what was exported from where, and which search criteria was used; reports are emailed to backup admins and included within PST files with exported data
  • Export size estimation: Predicts the amount of a discovery results based on search criteria to help you with query design
