            c:\Exchange\Mailbox\Second Storage Group\Public Folder Database.edb

Now I have installed the new Exchange 2007 and my qestion is:
How can I IMPORT or RESTORE my old ODB files to the new installed Exchange 2007 server?

Waiting for an urgent reply and Thanksadvance...

Thanks for your cooment FarazKhan,

Is it necessary to create all users under AD first or can I that later?

Well, once you make this machine member server and install exchange it will have the users list from domain. You simply make a new storage group and then mount the old .edb file
