Exchange is missing most of the info in priv1.edb

We are running SBS 2003 sp2.  Three days ago all of the private contacts and most of the mail (around 80%) of it disappeared.  I've checked the size of priv1.edb and found that it has not, a few MBs aside, changed in the past week.  This led me to run eseutil /p.  I got the "successfully completed with 205 (unknown ..." statement.  I still am missing the info.  I have tried to restore the data from backup using ntbackup.  I did check the "this database can be overwritten by restore" box, I did dismount the store, and i did check the "Last backup" option.  That yielded no results.  I tried to restore to an older backup with the same result.  I must be missing something.  There are no errors pertaining to exchange in the event log.  So, I'm stumped and my sales force is completely down until I can recover these contacts.  


thanks in advance

p.s the public DBs seem unaffedted by this.

I also do have adequate space on the drive containing the edb files.  It is a 35GB partition and the total size of all items on the drive is 18.8 GB

I was going to say call up MS since they can get things fixed quicker.
Good luck,

Ok sorry about the delay.  I fixed it.  Once I ran eseutil /p again the items showed up in the "Recover Deleted Items" page.  It all looks a little deliberate
