Well i am busy with the following.
Copy the DB to a different location (backup)
Stop all exchange services
Delette the E00 files in the mdbdata folder
Starting the Exchange services
Mount Store
Do a integrity check on the old DB ( the one in the backup folder) on the priv1 and pub1 edb files
when this is doen i will enable the ovewite option on the new db and copy the files back to the db location....hopefully this will work
