Exchange Public Folders Recovery

Posted on 2010-11-30
Last Modified: 2012-06-22
We have rebuilt our main server.

Old Server
Windows 2003 Standard 32b , Exchange 2003

New Config
Windows 2008 x64,  2010 Exchange

Same hardware.   All mailboxes were transferred using the EMC however not our public folders
I have about 10 folders that I somehow need to import into 2010

I have copies of the Pub1.edb and stm
I also have as worst case scenario msg files that make up each item that were in the dirs.
We used Ontrack Power controls 4.0 to export.  However this program is not supported in the new scenario

Thanks in advance!

Yes the old server is completely gone.  Are there other options with the database files?

We had to use powercontrols to mount the pub db and then export to msgs...then drag them into their appropriate directories in outlook .  Very dirty but it worked.  Thanks everyone
