Missing PRIV1.STM Exchange 2003 streaming file

My antivirus software completely deleted my priv1.stm file instead of quarantining it, and now i can't access my email stores.

I still have both the pub1.* files and the priv1.edb file. Is there ANY way whatsoever to repair/recreate this file? The server's only been running for a short time and I haven't performed any backups yet.

I tried running the eseutil utility, but it wasn't able to do anytihng since i was missing the priv1.stm file.

Thanks!

If you run eseutil /p /createstm you will get a .stm file to. But since /p is hard with the database, take a bakcup of it first. You will probably loose some attachments and maybe som mail, but you will at least get the mail up and running again.

Rember to keep antivirus software running on the file level away from exchange.

Good luck
