Recover a deleted priv1.stm file after defrag

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
After completing 2003 Exchange defrag on offline DB's using eseutil i accidentally deleted the priv1.stm file. I have full backups of Information Store. I currently have priv1.edb, pub1.edb, pub1.stm, ec.edb, and ec.stm which were defragged in D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA plus the logs at time of dismount. I checked the current priv1.edb for a clean shutdown state and that holds true. Can I simply restore the mailbox store w/Log files to a different location copy the priv1.edb and priv1.stm to its original location and defrag from there again? Will this work or?
