Extract Outlook Calendars from raw *.edb and *.stm files

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
We are looking for a utility that will search through the raw data in our pub1.edb or pub1.stm file on a hard disk in order to extract outlook calendar information stored within them.  Preferrably it would extract them into a Exchange Server friendly *.pst format, but even a text or excel spreadsheet file would be feasible at this time.

Anyone heard of such a Utility?

My recommendation would be to mount them and copy the data out that way.  The tools I have used only work for priv1.edb files, not the public folder store.  Is there a reason it is not mounted?

Commented:
It's not mounted because the restore is possibly corrupt and won't let us mount it...

Could you provide the name of the tool(s) that you used for the priv1.edb?

How big are your .EDB and .STM files?

Author

Commented:
I believe its approximately 7GB... but it looks like we found a tool that may have gotten the job done for us... I'll post an update as to how it worked later...

The utility is located at http://www.officerecovery.com/exchangeserver/index.htm
if anyone is interested... it seems to have restored the database and allowed us to export .pst files and get back most of the stuff we lost simply using the demo version...

Great news - always good to find a demo that saves you paying for the full product - I hope it is not too good to be true.

well, we noticed that it does block us from retrieving some of our contacts that we had, and the window simply says demo where the contact info should have been, so they force you to pay for it to retrieve 100% of the records, however I think we may have gotten lucky and were able to retrieve the core things that we wanted from it... :-)
