Having Problems with ESEUTIL to Recover Database

A clients server crashed. I had to restore the C: drive. That worked like a charm. Exchange now wont mount the databases. Databases are on the D: drive. I am attempting to run the ESEUTIL option to recover with the following parms and get the following error.

C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin>ESEUTIL /R E00 /I /LC:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBD
ATA /SD:\Exchange Data\mdbdata

Usage Error: Invalid argument 'Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA'. Options must be preceded
 by '-' or '/'.

It would seem to not like the space between program and files in the first argument.
The paths are correct what am I missing?

I would start by putting quotes around the path after /L
