"Different queues are stored in a single ESE database. By default,
this queue database is located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange
Server\TransportRoles\data\Queue.

Like any ESE database, the queue database uses log files to accept, track,
and maintain data. To enhance performance, all message transactions are
written first to log files and memory, and then to the database file. The
checkpoint file tracks the transaction log entries that have been committed
to the database. During an ordinary shutdown of the Microsoft Exchange
Transport service, uncommitted database changes that are found in the
transaction logs are always committed to the database.

Circular logging is used for the queue database. This means that the
history of committed transactions that are found in the transaction logs is
not maintained. Any transaction logs that are older than the current
checkpoint are immediately and automatically deleted. Therefore, the
transaction logs cannot be replayed for queue database recovery from
backup. Please see:

please ensure that the Antivirus software on the Hub Transport
server has been excluded to scan the folder where the mail.que database
file exists. By default, the file is saved in C:\Program
Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\data\Queue.
