In the Metabase explorer do you see the DS2MB key still present if present then delete it and restart MSExchangeSA

I saved the configuration of the default website this morning but do not see how to restore it.  There doesnt seem to be any critical events.  I went back into the Metabase explorer and delted the key again.

It can take 15 - 20 minutes for the directories to recreate, anything longer than that and there is a problem.

Run the Exchange best practises tool and see what that flags.

After deleting that DS2MB key again from Metabase Explorer you have restarted MSExchangeSA service right.
To run Exchange Best Practise Analyser tool download v2.8 from the site www.exbpa.com.

To restore the back up in IIS Manager right click on the Server name (Local Computer) you will get option to backup / restore and there you will see few automatic backups and the lates backup you can select one of them and select restore option below and wait for few minutes for it to restore.

Use Metabase Explorer and look at the W3SVC Metabase configuration
"/LM/W3SVC/ApplicationDependencies
C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts>cscript adsutil.vbs get w3svc/ApplicationDependencies
Check here and let me know what are the dependencies there should be only 7 present by default if more than that any junk needs to be deleted.

Do you get any event ids 1046, 1047 MsExchangeMU??
