I have (had) a w2k adv server with exchange 2000 with the exchsrvr folder backed up on an extrernal drive. I got this folder as a group back not intended as a exchange restore folder. We had power issue and i lost my drive (on server) that had the os and exchange. I decided at this point since all my data was backed up to upgrade to 2003 and 2003 exchange.

I got the os and email working fine then i decided to try to be smart and copy the old exchsrvr folder over the new one to recover the personal emails on the db. Well after some files failed to copy ( i did stop and unmount ) i just tried to restart and mount store to this error. ID NO: c1041724. I restarted info store and system manager to no avail.

I suppose i can re-install exchange but any way to recover info from old folder?

Thanks much.

Hi,

I don't think you'll be able to do this. I am pretty sure you'll need to setup Exchange 2000 in a recovery domain and then exmerge your data out to the new Exchange 2003 mailboxes.
