Unable to Mount Database in Recovery Storage Group after restore

I have restored a storage group, to which was mounted when the restore finished. I unmounted it but the operation stuck at 66% for a while.

Now, opon closing system manager and reopening I cannot mount the database, delete it or run any eseutil command on it due to the database being in use.

Anyone know of anyway I can make this database workable again, last time I had to reboot the server, but I am unable to do that at the moment.

Any help would be appreciated.

database seems to be locked by the store.exe process
restarting the IS service should unlock it.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I cant restart the Information Store during office hours as that will stop people from accessing their emails. If thats the only way I am going to be able to carry on then I guess Ill have to do it out of hours, and tie in a server reboot too. Thanks for your suggestion.
