FAQ - Ontrack PowerControls for Exchange
“Normally emails are stored deep within your backup software. The complete Microsoft Exchange mailbox server database file (.edb) is embedded within the backup software files.
The .edb file contains all the mailboxes and their respective emails. In order to gain access to the emails, you must first restore the backup access the .edb file. Then you have two options:
You make a brick-level backup with another physical Microsoft Exchange mailbox server to restore all or single emails
If you prefer an easy and reliable way, you use Ontrack PowerControls
Ontrack PowerControls is a specialised software package which allows you to easily extract the .edb file from its container format with its ExtractWizard and import it into the software. Soon after, you have full access to each and every email from the Microsoft Exchange mailbox server. Since Ontrack PowerControls maintains the integrity of the Exchange source files, it is the perfect tool to search, identify and export relevant data for ediscovery review or for compliance and regulatory requests.
You can recover a single email from tape by using Ontrack PowerControls for Microsoft Exchange. To access a single email, you just have to import an existing Exchange database file (.edb) or Personal Storage file (.pst) into the software. By doing so, you now have full access to the emails inside the Exchange or Outlook database file. Then, you can easily find the email required by using the advanced search functions, selecting the item and copying and pasting the email to any location.
Use Ontrack PowerControls ExtractWizard to select the backup with the target Exchange database file (.edb), usually identified by Exchange Server and date. ExtractWizard supports all major backup formats. Select the .edb and extract to a target location on your network. Launch Ontrack PowerControls for Exchange and select the .edb as the source. Search across the entire .edb or within individual mailboxes, folders, attachments, and calendar items. With the advanced find functions of Ontrack PowerControls, it is easy to search by matching keywords, excluding keywords, dates, senders, subjects, and recipients. Select the items to be restored to the Exchange Server or exported for ediscovery.
The term email data recovery refers to two situations, email restoration and email recovery. Email restoration is the process of
accessing email data from a good backup and putting it back into a production email server or exporting for legal or compliance requests.
The email database must be intact with no corruption or data loss for email restoration tools to restore the email. Conversely, email recovery involves the reconstruction of email databases and objects when there is data loss or database corruption.
Ontrack in lab services uses a suite of proprietary tools and processes to repair databases and recover email data. Ontrack® PowerControls™ for Exchange and Ontrack® Email365 can be used to restore emails from Exchange backups and Office 365.
Using proprietary tools, Ontrack technicians can access email databases from tapes, backups, and storage systems and then access specific mailboxes, messages, calendar items, archives, and attachments and provide them in a file, folder or container formats (PST, NSF) as required by the customer.
Email extraction is typically used when migrating legacy email to the cloud, to newer email platforms or when email is required for legal and compliance requests. For more information, see the Email Extraction Services page.

Ontrack® PowerControls™ will require the user to have a backup of the Office 365 mailbox to use as a source to perform a restore operation. Connect to the backup using the Source Wizard. Backups can be in .pst or .edb format. For .edb, locate the desired mailbox. If .pst, verify this backup corresponds to the correct mailbox. Use the Wizard to connect to the target Office 365 mailbox. Office 365 will require Active Directory credentials to access the target mailbox. Drag and drop the mailbox/pst from the source to the target mailbox.
