Recreate priv1.edb from stm file and log files
Posted on 2006-04-08
We have an SBS2000 server. The priv1.edb file was residing on a different hard drive from priv1.stm, pub1.stm, pub1.edb and the log files, and this hdd has failed. We do not have a backup of the priv1.edb file that we can recover. Following a chkdsk the file is reported as 0kb. The public store reports as clean using eseutil, but nothing I have tried works with the mailbox store as the file is obviously invalid. The E00 log file is valid and I have about 3 months of transaction logs.
Is it possible to recreate the priv1.edb from the intact stm file and transation logs? This is obviously the main objective, but failing this can I recreate the mailbox store and still retain the existing public store? The public store won't mount but does report as clean.
Your help is much appreciated!!
