Cannot mount mailbox store in Exchange after restore from backup

About mid-last week, I restored my exchange storage group on my SBS 2003 box.  At the time, I neglected to read up much on the subject so I did not use the "Last Restore Set" check-box. Now I cannot mount the stores.  After checking around online, I found that I should run eseutil /cc.  When I run this, I get the following error:

operation terminated with error -939523485 (Existing log file is not contiguous.)

I then did some more searching around online and found that I should check consistency and repair the database  (eseutil /mh and eseutil /p).  Both of these return the following error:

operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errfileaccessdenied, cannot access file, the file is locked or in use.)

What I don't understand is why it says the database is logged EVEN if I start the server in safe mode, and I have double-checked the permissions to the mdbdata folder, they should all be fine.

I have also tried the recovery (eseutil /r) to no avail.  Is my database completely destroyed or is there some way I can get it back online?

(please bear in mind I am still very new to windows server, so if I have missed something very obvious in this process, please let me know.)

I've never had the same problem, but here's a thought: are you logged into the server as a user that has full rights to the information store?

Yes, logged in as administrator, I checked and I do have full rights

oh and I meant to say LOCKED not LOGGED in the original question, sorry about that.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Well, what's strange about your comments is that an error of:
Operation terminated with error -1032 (JET_errFileAccessDenied, Cannot access file, the file is locked or in use)
means that your filestore was actually mounted.  So I don't quite understand how you are saying that it cannot mount?

I'm also getting MSExchangeSA Event ID 9175 and when I right click the store, it only gives me a MOUNT option, not an unmount option, which makes me think that the store really isn't mounted.

Sounds like its time to pull out the Exchange Disaster Recovery Analyzer to see what you've got and what you can do with it:  http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-2003-Disaster-Recovery-Analyzer-Tool-ExDRA-10.html
