Restore Mailbox Error

Beginner

I have a current Exchange Server in production and need to restore a deleted mailbox from a backup taken last year.

I've indicated that it needs to recreate the AD account and reassociate the mailbox to it, but since the /First Storage Group/Mailbox Database is being used by the rest of the company it keeps failing trying to access it. I did notice that there was an option to overwrite the current database, but my fear is that it will wipeout my current database will all my active mailboxes.

All I want it to do is restore the mailbox into the /First Storage Group/Mailbox Database so I can export it to a PST file. What exactly am I doing wrong?

Thank you,
Chris

Any update on this? If no advice can be given out about doing a single mailbox recovery from an IS backup, can you please give me the phone number for paid support? The lack of documentation makes me a little gun shy from pulling the trigger just to recover this one mailbox.
