Exmerge has been working OK for 1 year now and suddenly began to fail to complete extracting all mailboxes and creates a log file to fill all disc space

Suspected exchange database so did offline defrag.
ran exmerge to create brand new *.pst files...worked fine.
put new *.pst file to one side...
re-instated old *.pst files from backup...ran exmerge...
problem persists...so probably one of the PST files is corrupt.
Assuming I can find which one by running Outklook on them all...is there any hope for the corrupt one?
Prefer to not end up with mutliple user backup *.PSTs

scheduled task command line is....
c:\exmerge\exmerge -B -D -f exmerge1.ini -logmed -srcserv stexchange

I inherited this system 5 months after it was installed and wonder if there any enviromental considerations that got missed...like whether the exchange server can be on line and fully operational whilst running exmerge.
