I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Post the event generated during the issue.

Exclude all the exchange database folder from the anti-virus scanning.

Also check does your disks are having any issues.

Hope this helps,
This is probably due to database size lmiits.

Exchange 2003 Pre SP2 is 16GB
Exchange 2003 SP2 is 18GB, rising to 75GB with registry fix.

Sounds like you need to repair the store by doing the following:

Dismount the store
run eseutil /p
run eseutil /d
run isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests

With 578gb and eseutil running at about 5gb per hour, you are looking at loads of downtime, so creating a new store and moving mailboxes to it might be easier / quicker.

thanks everyone think its a restore from tape job
thank god Mc Donalds are hiring :)
lol, nice to see in the face of adversity that you can still find humour. That was a joke right?! ;)

On a serious note, you may be able to replay any log files you have after a restore from tape, if you have all log files from the last successful backup, that way you will not lose any mail with a bit of luck.

We opened a case with MS, ended up restoring DB to another server and modifying all the users to point to new Exchange server.
