Export public folder from Exchange 5.5 hard disk


I'm trying to recover some public folders from an old installation of exchange 5.5.  I have the original hard drive from the old server that contains the private information store but I no longer have the server that the drive used to be attached to.  Is there a tool that allows me to export mailboxes or public folders directly from the hard disk so I can import them into our new exchange environment (i.e. without rebuilding the server?).

can't be done any other way except with up and running EXchange server.

export public folders to PST from a client machine using the administrator account...then re-import them on the new server...again using the administrator account.

that is the easiest way.

Both of those suggestions require (I think) a running exchange server and all I have is the original hard drive with the pub.edb file on it.  I found PowerControls 3.0 but it's $1000.
