I have a Exchange 2007 server I restored data to after three days of email came up missing for one user. I open the Exchange Troubleshooter Assistance and attempt to merge email from the recovered database to the current database and I get the following error:

Mailbox (user name) has been restored successfully. Status Code: -1056749110. Status Message: Error occurred in the step: Moving messages. This mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items specified for this move mailbox operation.

I fear that the mailbox could well be beyond recovery.  Do you need anything from the mailbox?  Do you have an older back you can restore from?

How big is the mailbox in question?

5G is small for an exchange database.

How do you export to PST with exchange 2007? Is it the same as 2003 using exmerge?

oh the db is 5gb, I thought u meant the mailbox was 5gb

Is the database in the recovery storage group?

I have just had this problem, I checked the xml logfile found under c:\program files\microsoft\exchange server\logging\MigrationLogs and noticed that it mentioned mailbox exceeded the maximum number of corrupted items.  Checking the text file I noticed that it showed 92 items that were not moved.  I dont know what the maximum number defaults to but you can specify either in the GUI or via Exchange Management console the BadItemLimit.  
Technet - "The BadItemLimit parameter specifies the number of corrupted items in a mailbox to skip before the export operation fails."

I put this above the 92 and the restore from the Recovery Storage Group to a seperate mailbox on the production server went through fine.
