Safely running eseutil.exe on a storage group which cannot be backed up

Hello Experts,
  I've got a 12 gig mailbox store which is corrupt and therefore cannot be successfully backed up.  I'm hoping to run Eseutil.exe on this store to fix the corruption, however, i'm hesitant to do so since i have no backup to restore from if anything goes south.

Additionally, since i can't backup, the MBDData folder has grown to 47 gigs.

If the corruption is fixed, and a successful backup is run, that should clear out those old log files, right?

Thank you very much for your time.

Best,
  Matthew Smith

If you can do a soft recovery, the files should be purged. Not 100% sure about this, but the estutil may do it for you before the backup is run. If it doesn't but the repair is successful, the logs should be purged after a successful backup.
