Backups reporting corrupt data: database or database element is corrupt
Posted on 2004-04-20
The server with the problem was recently installed (MS Win2003 SBS server w/ Exchange 2003) from an NT4/Exchange 5.5 server which had a hard drive going bad. The bad hard drive prevented me from running the migration utility for the Exchange mailboxes to the new server so I used exmerge to pipe them into a pst file and then back up to the new server. Some of the mailboxes would not exmerger so I copied the mail records to a local pst file and then up to the new server. Also some of the mailboxes were very large and I had run into some problems but I got them all to the new server and everything seems OK but the backups report failures on every backup. The error:

Database or database element is corrupt
There are very many of these and after removing them some more will appear. It seems like there might be some problem with the exchange database but I am not an expert with Exchange.
I would really appreciate any help.
