Extracting Data from Pub1.edb

I have recently been asked to restore a contact list and calendar from an old pub1.edb file that I have on tape.

It is easy enough for me to restore the Pub1.edb file, but unfortunately the server that this file was associated with no longer exists.  :(

Therefore, I need a way to extract the data from the file, without the old exchange server.   I have found a product called "powercontrols" which will extract the data for me (and I have had success with the demo) BUT, I cannot afford the software.

Is there a shareware product out there with a smaller cost which will extract the data?    Does anyone have the software that could extract a Contacts folder and 2 calendars from my file for a reasonable cost?   My email address is stonian70@hotmail.com .

Thank-you in advance!

Is there nobody that has the software, that I could send my Pub1.edb file to, to extract the data for me?    If I had the software, it would probably take 5 minutes (as there is not much data).

I would be willing to pay for a few hours time at a reasonable consulting rate.

please get back to me ASAP, if someone can help me.  

Thanks,

Preston

WHY must I always have to do it the hard way!  :(

Solution:

1.  I got a box (not compatible hardware as old server), and installed Windows 2K
2. Installed service packs and updates
3. Installed Active Directory and created same AD structure as old Ad.
4. Installed Exchange 2k with same site/org name
5. Installed SP and rollups  (Installed outlook)
6. Copied contents of MDBDATA directory to backup directory
7. Copied my PUB1.EDB and PUB1.STM file over top of the NEW PUB files from new installation.
8. Ran ISINTEG -fix -test alltests on the PUB1.
9. Ran ESEUTIL /p on Pub1
10. Attempted to mount store.   MOUNTED!
11. CPU Utilization at 100%...  Dismounted Store
12. Ran ISINTEG AGAIN
13. Ran ESEUtil /p /g  fixed corruption
14. Ran ISinteg again
15. Mounted Store.
16. Went into Exchange system Manager.   Modified properties on Public Folders so Administrator had access to the folder.
17. Using Outlook client,(signed in as Administrator) extracted all folders in PUB to PST.


DONE!
