Veeam Explorer for Exchange works directly with your Exchange VM backups—even compressed, deduplicated and incremental backups. 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 export.


Veeam Explorer for Exchange is a new feature of Veeam Backup & Replication. Currently available as a beta, Veeam Explorer will be included in all editions of Veeam Backup—even Free Edition. You no longer need expensive standalone tools for Exchange item recovery that are licensed per mailbox.
