Somehow all of the E00~.LOG transaction logs in the MDBDATA folder are gone and my information stores will not mount (Exchange 2000 Enterprise).  Am I permanently screwed?

Thanks for the info.  I don't have backups of those E00.LOG files.  It sounds like I'm screwed.  That's going to leave a mark.

Ok, what event ID comes up in the applog when you try to start the store?

you are not permanently screwed but there may be some data loss. what exactly do you have left in the folder? do you still have the stores? do you have any logs?

I would back up the stores if you have them and then I would run eseutil /p accept the dialog telling you the db is not consistent. It will run and clean up the tables. After it completes move or delete ALL the log files including the base E00 log and mount the store. This may give you data loss though.

these are good articles to read.

Ok, I'm almost done backing up the databases.

I have all of my .EDB and .STM files.  I have none of the E00.log (transaction) files.

My .edb and .stm files are actually on a different drive due to their size.  How do I write the syntax for eseutil?

I tried this and it gives me an incorrect syntax error:

eseutil /mh D:\Exchange Data\Executive 1.edb
