Exhcange missing First Storage Group SBS 2003 SP1

I have inherited a SBS 2003 server which has not been using exchange to manage their email. I have started to reconfigure the server to use exchange but I am missing the First Storage Group node when I view through the Exchange System Manager.
I have looked in the ADSI edit and the CN=InformationStore is missing.

When I check the properties for the server I get the following error;

An Invalid ADSI pathname was passed ID no: 80005000

Looks like someone has deleted or changed some permissions somewhere and explains why they have been using a POP add on to manage their email.

Please can you point me in the direction to amend the Invalid ADSI pathname so the server can find the store.

This is a SBS 2003 running SP1, I have had to uninstall SP2 as some of the previous updates were missing/messed up some have not installed the next updates yet.
