Hello Sunray,
Thank You for your kind reply.
I have downloaded that tool and will be working on it tomorrow since I don't have setup at home, but my boss wants me to first try to export .pst file to test file.
I'll tell you what is the real problem...
We are trying to automate exchange server and in doing that we are checking the data consistency, so we are exporting .edb files to .pst file with company developed tool and then now we want to read those files and compare the content.
If you know any tool which can convert .edb file to text file , please help me out in that.
We are facing one more problem and that is we want to compare database (.edb) before restore with database(.edb) after restore, but in this restore process database size has changed , so when I compare those two .edb files they fail to compare and I can not check the data consistency. Do you see the problem? Do you know any solution for this?
Please guide me in this process...
Thank You,
Pallavi
