All exchange services are started have tried restarting.  
Exchange is on SP2 all other updates present
Store size is small  whole exchange folder is only 7Gb
Tried a restore of exchange folder via NT backup marked stores to be overwritten by restore first.
On trying to mount the stores from system manager I get the following

An internal processing error has occurred.  Try restarting the exchange system manager or the Microsoft Exchange information store, or both .....etc ID no c1041724 exchange system manager.

Noticed after reading an article re exchange 2000 a system mailbox user in AD that was disabled, re enabled but this didnt help.
have run BPA no issues found.

Please help urgently I need the server back in a few hours and need some sleep.
Thanks Mark
